Williamsburg, Virginia

April, 1955


Ave had a good day of sightseeing! Were at it most of the day in the hot Va. sun. Left coats in the car. The flowers are lovely here – tulips, iris, violets are all out though they say it is in late spring. The reconstructed area is very interesting. Have seen today about half of the buildings open. Tonight we went to a candlelight concert of 18th and 17th century string music in the Governor’s Palace. It was delightful. Ate dinner tonight at the Williamsburg Inn – wonderful food.


THE CAPITOL, 1699-1705

This structure closely identified with the political life of Colonial Virginia, has been rebuilt on original foundations at the earlier of two buildings that stood here during the eighteenth century. Its furnishings and unusual interior painting conform to descriptions in contemporary records.
