Architectural Clues to 18th-Century Williamsburg


This exhibition explores architectural elements from both surviving and demolished 18th- and early-19th-century buildings in the Historic Area. The pieces featured are part of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation’s architectural collection and provide an interesting and valuable research tool in studying the history of the built environment before, during and after the restoration of Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area. Most recently, the collection helped with the reconstruction of Charlton’s Coffeehouse and the Public Armoury, as well as informing paint colour changes throughout the Historic Area.
