As you pause to admire the town’s 18th-century architecture, it may be hard to imagine that fierce fighting ever took place nearby. But Yorktown was critical in both the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. At Yorktown Battlefield, part of the National Park Service’s Colonial National Historical Park, you can see where George Washington secured America’s independence in 1781. The Yorktown Victory Monument is here, as well as a Civil War-era National Cemetery. Nearby at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, a living history museum, you can experience the American Revolution firsthand through film, galleries, and re-creations of a Revolution-era farm and a Continental Army encampment. Costumed historical interpreters may even recruit you to join a cannon crew or help tend the crops.
Colonial Williamsburg is the only place that takes you back in time to the dawn of America. This isn’t just a place where things once happened. They’re happening, right now, here in the 18th century. We’re the place where the idea of our country is being born; the place where the ideals we stand for as Americans are being defined. We are the 18th century “live,” filled with the stories of the women, men, and children—free and enslaved—whose values and visions gave us a new world.
Step back in time and meet the people who made America—sing with them, dance with them, eat with them, and have fun with them. For every person who wants to understand this country, this is your place.
From hands-on activities to guided tours of original 18th-century buildings to our unmatched folk-art collection, there’s something for everyone at Colonial Williamsburg.
