The eWilliamsburg Project

eWilliamsburg is an interactive map for exploring Williamsburg, the 18th-century capital of Britain's largest mainland colony. Using the map, you can investigate how the town grew and changed, from a small colonial outpost named Virginia's capital in 1699, to a thriving city in the years leading up to the American Revolution. Learn more about the people, places, and events that shaped Williamsburg’s history and find out about the research behind the restoration and interpretation of the town today.
