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.

The Gatekeeper, Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia


This costumed employee of Colonial Willaimsburg maintains his watch at the entry to the George Wythe House.  (Click here for Wythe House Photos)  While it is free to wander through the historic district, you  must purchase a pass to enter the historic exhibits. So the "gatekeeper" checks each person for a pass.

Colonial Williamsburg maintains the historic district in its 1770's appearance, when it was the capitol of Virginia, and presents many historical exhibits, homes, museums, trades, and dining experiences as they were when George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry took part in the colonial government and planned for the revolution.

When I was in New England around Nantucket there were lots of costumed characters around the tourist attractions. They even talked in the old English style.
