Isham Goddin Shop, Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia



This small shop is adjacent to Christiana Campbell's Tavern. It was purchased by Isham Goddin, a militiaman from New Kent in 1778 for 200 pounds but sold for 90 pounds in 1783. According to Colonial Williamsburg, the property values were quite inflated and when the capital moved to Richmond, quickly dropped.

Today it is a two bedroom guest house available to visitors who want the full colonial experience.

And we think the bottom fell out of the real estate market, in this day and age. I' love to stay in the guest house and be "immersed" in the Colonial Williamsburg experience!
