Colonial Williamsburg

Step back in time to experience the ideas and dreams of both great and everyday people on the eve of the American Revolution. The process of defining our country's values and beliefs started in Williamsburg more than 200 years ago, and it continues to this day.

In the 173 acres and more than 500 restored and reconstructed buildings of Colonial Williamsburg, you'll discover hundreds of people representing actual citizens from 18th century Williamsburg. Skilled craftsmen create items like saddles, garments and cartwheels for the use of other Colonial Williamsburg tradespeople and citizens; people actually live in the homes you'll pass by, and real commerce takes place within the town's many shops and taverns. Not just during a few hours each day for a limited season, but day and night, all year round.
