Colonial Courthouse and Unique Fence, Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia


The Colonial Courthouse is pictured here from the side of the Magazine, where the weapons and powder were kept, and its protective fencing. In colonial times, to qualify as a juror in this court one was required to be a white, adult male, and a property owner.

Rather un-usual gate for modern times. Wonderful foreground for the architecture in the background.
