So, how was Colonial Williamsburg? GREAT! Not only did I learn so much about america’s history but it was such an interactive and fun way to learn everything. I was transported to the 18th century as I walked across the bridge to the beginning of the living museum. My first stop, was a farm property, complete with a kitchen house, a garden, crop land, a shed to dry the tobacco that doubled as a tool shed, a well, and the slaves quarter. All of the buildings furnished with century relevant objects to give the most accurate vision of what life would have been like during that period. Best part about this first location? Meeting one of the “farmers” who was moving fertilizer with two large auburn brown “slightly mischievous” and very hard working Oxen.
After this first farm, we went to the Governors Palace, a beautifully decorated residence for the govern. the walls covered with guns, swords, and really anything that would help show the power and strength of the crown. The quality of the house, decorations and the sheer size of this building compared to other buildings gave such an accurate representation of how wealthy and well of the governor was.
I could probably go on and on about each and every building I went to… but I won’t, I’ll just highlight a few more of my favorites in my next post.
