Williamsburg, VA Photos

Williamsburg was the first capital of the colony of Virginia. The Williamsburg Capitol was built in 1704 and the Virginia legislature met there until 1780. The village from that era has been restored or recreated, one of America's earliest heritage conservation efforts. Today, Williamsburg stands as an unusual open air museums in that visitors may wander the grounds freely, but need an admission ticket to enter the buildings where interpreters in period dress demonstrate life in early Virginia.
