SIgn Of The Rhinoceros, Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia



The "Sign Of The Rhinoceros" is the name given this building and it bears the rather unusual rhinoceros shaped sign.  It is a private residence with this beautifully decorated window.  So how does this fit in with the historical experience in Colonial Williamsburg? It was somehow part of an alternate reality conspiracy, intrigue game for families available online and on site earlier this year.

What a great idea! Engaging young people is always a challenge for museums/restorations, but this idea is inspired.
