Welcome to an almost daily peek at our beautiful Williamsburg, Virginia which includes the "Historic Triangle" consisting of Colonial Williamsburg -the world’s largest living history museum- Yorktown and Jamestown.

Museum on Main, Yorktown, Virginia





The Museum on Main in Yorktown and the York County Historical Museum, just down the street, provide a variety of exhibits from naval weaponry to info on local historical sites.  Outside the site, the pineapple, a sign of welcome in colonial times, and barrel provide a colonial look.  The bilge and quarter hoop of the barrel seem to have not wintered well and have fallen off.  Behind the cannon the brickwork fences are visible.

What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
