horse and buggy in williamsburgThe historic area of Colonial Williamsburg - centered around the Duke of Gloucester street - is the cornerstone of the Williamsburg area and played a major role in the nation's developing democracy during the turbulent times prior to and during the Revolutionary War. Colonial Williamsburg is the historic section of the city of Williamsburg, Virginia. Consisting of many of the original buildings that formed the first colonial capital of Williamsburg from 1699 to 1780, Colonial Williamsburg provides a "living museum" full of history and information.

Early in the 20th century, Colonial Williamsburg underwent one of the largest restorations in history. Some of the structures from the Colonial period have been reconstructed on their original sites. Many other structures have been restored to their original 18th century appearances and most buildings are open for tourists to tour.

A main source of tourism to Williamsburg, Virginia and the surrounding area, visitors can witness an interpretation of a Colonial American city with exhibits including many authentic colonial homes, American Revolutionary War history exhibits, and the town jail, which includes an authentic Stocks and pillory display. Other notable structures include the large Capitol and the Governor's Palace, each with gardens and landscape reconstructed as closely as possible to original 18th century specifications. The ambiance is furthered with horse drawn carriages and a myriad of other animals walking the streets.

Fully restored to authentic 18th century living, taking a walk through Colonial Williamsburg is like taking a walk through time into another era. The people who work and live in Colonial Williamsburg do more than wear the costumes from the period - they live, walk and talk the part...engaging in debates between the Crown Loyalists and the Revolutionaries. There are those who make and serve Colonial meals in taverns that date back hundreds of years. Musicians play authentic music on actual 18th century instruments. Blacksmiths forge, dressmakers offer the latest in puritan fashion, shoemakers create sturdy, protective - and heavy - footwear... it is an amazing journey back in time to the roots of our developing Nation.

The Inn at 802, A Williamsburg Bed and Breakfast is perfectly situated just a short walk from the Historic area and directly across the street from The College of William and Mary. Our Historic Williamsburg lodging options continue to envelop you in the ambiance of Colonial Williamsburg throughout your stay.
