In the late 1920s, the restoration and re-creation of colonial Williamsburg was undertaken. Therefore, it is now a living-history museum, an interpretation of a colonial American city, the historic district in the city of Williamsburg, Virginia.

Colonial Williamsburg is one of the largest history projects in the United States and a main tourist attraction - costumed employees work and dress as people did in the era...

In the 18th century, Williamsburg was the center of government, education and culture in the then Colony of Virginia where, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and others furthered the forms of British government in the Commonwealth of Virginia. But during the American Revolutionary War, in 1780, under the leadership of Governor Thomas Jefferson, the government moved to Richmond where it remains until today.
