christiana cambell tavern

by ewileman

We visited your restaraunt several years ago and enjoyed the small mini corn muffins. I am unable to locate a recipe for these. Can you help?

I am sorry, but you have posted a question here on VT.
We are not the shop you are looking for, we are a travel website.
Good luck.

A quick search for "recipe" at the Colonial Williamsburg website (http://www.history.org/) didn't dig up much. But I did find out that there is a Colonial Williamsburg Tavern Cookbook which you can purchase at

http://www.williamsburgmarketplace.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SearchResultsView?itemOrDescription=875682&x=0&y=0&storeId=10001&catalogId=12113&langId=-1

Perhaps it has the recipe you're looking for. If I have the chance to check out a local bookstore I'll see if they have the cookbook and look for the recipe.

Wait...could it be that the muffins you remember were sweet potato muffins? If so you can actually purchase the mix for these muffins at

I hope that helps!

Travel Tips for Williamsburg

Ginger Bread Cakes and Cool Lemonade on a Hot Day

by tetonski1

A family favorite tradition is to visit the Raleigh Tavern Bakery, located behind the Raleigh Tavern. They serve gingerbread cakes, ham biscuits, root beer, apple cider cool lemonade and other treats.

You can sit on the benches under a shade tree behind the Raleigh tavern on a hot day, and enjoy gingercakes that are just as delicious as they must have been for the local townsfolk over 250 years ago. A nice break about halfway through the town walking tour.

I have been in Williamsburg...

by upesnlwc

I have been in Williamsburg for 19 years. I have found Williamsburg to be one of the most peaceful places on Earth. This is my suggestion for you...One night after dark, go the the Dunkin Doughnuts on Richmond Rd., get a cup of coffee, go to Mrchant's Square and sit on the benches in front of Binn's Department Store. Drink your coffee, chat with a freind, listen to the silence and serinity, or take a walk down Duke Of Glouchester with all of the colonial style lights on to dimly light the road. If you are there in the summertime, you may even see me there on those very smae benches, EVERYNIGHT.

Woman's cap

by matcrazy1

Cap completes the apperance of 18th century woman and prevents the need to dress the hair. It keeps the hair free from everyday dust and dirt (keep in mind that there were no paved roads that time), so that the hair need not be washed as frequently. The caps were usually made of cotton or linen. The style of fashionable cap changed frequently, so they varied in shape, size, design and adornment but right many women, at least costumed women in colonial Williamsburg, wore the caps similar to this one on my picture, with some ruffles added. More decorative caps had some lace added.

Presidents (Heads) Park

by Karnubawax

Looming like a patriotic Easter Island, Presidents Park contains the larger-than-life likenesses of all 43 presidents, most measuring 16-18 feet high! Signs give you lots of info on their accomplishments, nicknames, and just about everything else. Renowned sculptor David Adickes created these giant heads a few at a time, and they were on display in various places throughout Virginia before being assembled in this park.

This is by no means some weird artist's idea of a joke; the folks here take it all very seriously, and market the park as an educational tool, which it certainly is. Even the most ardent history buffs will learn something new about our nation's leaders.

President's Park is located on I-64, Exit 242B, on the way to Busch Gardens and Water Country USA, just a few miles east of Colonial Williamsburg. Tickets are $9.75 for adults, $6.50 for kids, under 5 free (AAA discount - 10%). It is open 10-8 daily from April thru August, 10-4 the rest of the year.

You can easily see this place in an hour or two, so just make it a side trip - don't plan to spend all day here.

Like 300 years ago

by matcrazy1

Most areas of Colonial Williamsburg not at all look like in the 18th century. The main avenue (Duke of Gloucester Street) and other streets are paved by asphalt. There are a lot of quite contemporary looking visitors almost everywhere. Most houses are so clean like they were buit yesterday.

But besides it, there are off the beaten path parts of colonial Williamsburg which look more authentic. Look at the backyard on my picture, somewhere close Nicholson street. Do not skip it, go off the beaten path.
