Ornate Entry Gate and Cupula at the Governer's Palace, Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia



The Governor's Palace was the sign of power and control in Colonial Williamsburg before the revolution.  It was destroyed by fire but reconstructed in meticulous detail using writings and other historical information. Here you see the ornate gate and cupola each of which includes the monogram "GR" which stands for "George Rex." Rex is Latin for king.
