Cicada invasion!

by dcpink

I'm from the DC area where there is a cicada infestation from the notorious brood x that emerges every 17 years (we're talking in the millions!). My husband and I would like to get away from them and were thinking about Williamsburg this summer. Does anyone know if the cicada problem has reached Williamsburg?

Re: Cicada invasion!

by pedersdottir

I was interested in the question, simply because the NY Times has been full of articles about the cicada emergence, and mention has been made of them in our local news, too....To date, however, there has been no sign or sound of cicadas in the Chicago area. Do these things emerge east to west, south to north, or what? If anyone else knows, pls post a reply.
Thanks all.

No cicadas yet! I actually don't think they are coming to Williamsburg.

Re: Re: Cicada invasion!

They are not even down here in Spotsylvania nor Fredricksburg. I work in Fairfax, and they just arrived last week. Huge critters. I was waiting at a light today on RT.29 and Jermantown road, and I saw one flying around the car in front of me. They are so slow, and stupid...don't forget..they only arrive for a short period of time every 17 years. So, enjoy Williamsburg.

Travel Tips for Williamsburg

Respect the "Privacy!"

by Yaqui

Many of the homes are private residence and are not open to the public and are nestle in between some the open exhibits. The town is closed off for the tourist during the day, but open back up at night so residence can have their privacy back. This means the roads are open back up, so be careful if your strolling around on the streets at night.

Here is a guide of the sites you can see and make sure you follow the map so you don't tress pass onto some else's private property
Historical exhibits

Restoration is a Way of Life

by deecat

I was fascinated by Bassett Hall or sometimes known as the Rockefeller home.
When you visit, you experience a video program shown in the Bassett Hall reception building that describes the beginning of the restoration of Williamsburg.

For those who do not know, John D. Rockefeller Jr. was an heir of the Standard Oil wealth. He became a wonderful philanthropist who became interested in the Reverand Dr. W.A.R. Goodwin's desire to restore all of Williamsburg. He invited Rockefeller to visit, showing him the Bassett Hall Home.

Eventually, Goodwin convinced Rockefeller to purchase the home. Rockefeller was most interested in the GreatOak, a huge tree that was over 100 years old. Bassett Hall became the Rockefellers' residence during their twice-annual trips to Williamsburg. Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, John's wife, decorated Bassett Hall with folk art. (The folk art museum was developed from her folk art collection.)

The home is a simple two-story 18th -century white frame farmhouse that sits on 585 acres of woodlands, lawn, and gardens. The garden blooms in the spring and in the fall, just as it did when the Rockefellers made their seasonal visits. You can use the trails that the Rockefellers made in the woods and use an audiotape tour.

It's called Bassett Hall because Burwell Bassett purchased it around 1800; it was then acquired for Colonial Williamsburg in 1927. Rockefeller purchased it in 1936, and it stayed in the Rockefeller family until 1979 when it was bequeathed to Colonial Williamsburg. It was opened to the public in 1980, and was completely restored in 2000 (it took two years so it did not reopen until 2002.)

Unlike the rest of the Historic Area (18th century restorations), Bassett Hall appears as it did in the 1930s and the 1940s (the early days of the restoration of Colonial Williamsburg) when the Rockefellers lived here.

Women's informal dress (18th century)

by matcrazy1

This costumed lady, on my picture, sat down on front of the Williamsburg's colonial Post Office.

She was costumed in informal dress of typical woman of 18th century. I paid attention to her:
1. cotton cap with some decorative ruffles added at the front edge,
2. casual dress,
3. cape - typical protective outer garment that is shaped to the neck; it covered her shoulders, can be fastened at the center front and was usually shorter than a cloak. A cape was made of either heavy or light fabrics of wool, cotton or silk.
4 protective outer garment with covers her front lower part.

A Must See: Carter's Grove

by deecat

Carter's Grove is eight miles from Colonial Williamsburg. It is a beautiful colonial plantation along the James River. The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation has created authentic displays and "living" exhibits here showing four centuries of history. I tell you, after you have been here, you have a deeper appreciation of history!

Robert "King" Carter purchased this land, and his grandson, Carter Burwell, built a Georgian mansion here. Carter lived here for only six months before his death. His son Nathaniel Burwell then lived here and raised corn and wheat. The Burwell family remained here until 1838.
The most interesting part of visiting this plantation is to learn about the slaves who lived in cramped dwellings with bare domestic necessities. They formed their own unique community and blended their African and Virginian heritages, creating a new African-American culture.

Mr. and Mrs. Archibald McCrea purchased Carter's Grove in 1928, and they deeded it to Colonial Williamsburg in 1969.

Be sure to see the RECEPTION CENTER as you enter Carter's Grove. Watch the orientation film and see the exhibits such as the reconstructed slave quarter where you see the backbone of support for this busy plantation. Then, cross the grounds and see an orientation film in the stable area before visiting the MANSION. Take a self-guided tour (1/2 hour).

If you are interested in archaeological research, then go to underground Winthrop Rockefeller Archaeology Museum west of the mansion.
