Randolph House, Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia

Peyton's Shadow

This is a portion of the side of the Peyton Randolph house in Colonial Williamsburg. It is probably one of the largest properties in town and at a prime location on the square near the courthouse. Randolph, a prominent figure in the 1770's, was the President of the First and Second Continental Congress in 1774 and 1775. Unfortunately, his health failed and he died in 1775. He was considered the "father of his country" before his death; a title which passed to George Washington after the Revolution.
