Private Colonial Williamsburg Architectural Tour
We will discuss the different philosophies of architectural preservation between Europe and the United States during the late 19th and 20th Century and how it applies to the restoration of Colonial Williamsburg. The restoration materials of Colonial Williamsburg had to appear as if they were constructed in the 18th Century. For example, the roofs of many of the reconstructed buildings were man made fire retardant composites, and the masonry emulated the original bound of the public buildings. When the Main College was rededicated as the Wren building, credit was given to the the famous English Architect, Sir Christopher Wren. However, there is no proof that this is true. The base of this building is a Flemish design as opposed to the English bond. As the Wren building stands today, it is a redesign of the building that existed in 1733. It will be a comprehensive discussion of the vision of Rev. W.A.R. Goodwin and John D. Rockfeller, Jr. that resulted in Colonial Williamsburg.

What people are saying about Half-day Tours in Williamsburg
Williamsburg East Ghost Tour"This tour was different than other ghost tours because it was more than just stories. We got to see real photos of ghosts and apparitions taken by both the trout guide and past guests. We were able to take our own photos and have him help us identify if we had captured any ghosts in our own photos. The stories we heard were historically accurate and not just fiction for the tour. It was also very affordable as compared to other tours and it was longer in duration without having to pay extra for “bonus” locations. I did this tour with my husband and my 2 kids (age 11 and 13) and we all enjoyed it."..."

Private Colonial Williamsburg Architectural Tour"Five-star tour to learn about Colonial Williamsburg architecture and restoration. I was extremely impressed how he connected the British and Colonial architecture to Palladianism. The history of Williamsburg was explained in detail without being boring and our tour guide's enthusiasm and sense of humor was wonderful. The Governor's Palace was the prime example of Palladianism and Georgian designs. I was surprised that the tour included us with a one-day pass for Colonial Williamsburg buildings. It was worth every penny."..."
