    People in the town of Williamsburg live in homes very much like those in colonial times as far as architecture. They seem to all keep the tradition of the colonial village.

    This shoemaker not only told us about how they used to make shoes but knew everything about Williamsburg. We spent a lot of time just asking questions.

    The Train Station

    Even this station has the look of colonial. It is small and clean with many people getting on the train to the big cities of the east. The trains start or end in either Boston or Newport News.

    What is better than joining in a Fife and Drum Band Parade on Christmas Night. The parade ended at the Capital and we all had a big fire in the street with the sounds of carols and the band .

    Here we are in front of Shields Tavern waiting for the Fife and Drum Band to pass by our location. We had a fire built along the street like so many others to keep us warm on Christmas Night.

    In coolonial times each house had gardens to provide the owner with fruits and vegetables to last a year. They used the process of canning and cold cellars to keep these foods cold for their use.

    Fife & Drum Corps along Duke of Gloucester Street

    Every so often, as you calmly stroll from William & Mary to the Capitol (or Shields Tavern), a fife and drum corps will pop up out of nowhere adding a little more colonial flavour.

    We visited Williamsburg in the spring of 1987 when there were hardly any tourists around and the streets were empty, only populated by locals who were dressed like 200 years ago.
