The Governor's Palace, Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia
















The Governor's Palace was the symbol of royal control and power in colonial times and is one of the most prolific exhibits at Colonial Williamsburg.

Colonial Williamsburg is the world's largest living history museum depicting the life and political climate immediately before the American Revolution.  It is over 300 acres of meticulously restored and reconstructed buildings staffed by costume characters protraying colonial citizens in every day life.  The buildings and exhibits are based on the archaelogical and historical research painstakingly completed by the professional staff.  The story of normal life as well as the pending political upheaval is told through art, life, and drama on a daily basis.  While you can see most of the exhibits in a few days, you can visit time and again and not see everything.

Take the virtual tour.

I am so glad I discovered your wonderful blog. I have been to Williamsburg many times over the years, though the last time was about a year ago. Your photos are great and I have thoroughly enjoyed my visit, thank you :)

I have always thought that was such a handsome building!

I'll second that. I've been to Colonial Williamsburg several times and probably haven't seen half of what's there.
