Williamsburg, Virginia

Wythe House Garden View
One of the most beautiful formal gardens in Williamsburg is found at the George Wythe House, home of the first professor of law in an American college and Washington's headquarters prior to the Yorktown Siege.  Garden is enclosed on two sides by main house and outbuildings.  Open daily.

Robinson's Windmill
Williamsburg, Virginia
This is a replica of the original windmill used to grind meal in the 18th century.  The windmill was so constructed that the entire building could be turned into the wind.

Bruton Parish Church, Williamsburg, Virginia.  Built 1710 - 1715, it was the court church of the English colony.  One of the most historic churches in America because of its unparalleled association with the great men of Virginia's "golden age".
