Digital History Center

The Digital History Center (DHC), located in the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Library, directs digital initiatives for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation’s Research Division. Founded in 2002, the DHC uses innovative technologies to engage the public in the continuing conversation about the American Revolution, citizenship, and democracy. DHC staff employ technologies such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Virtual Reality, and XML, to create digital resources for studying and analyzing 18th-century America, with a focus on Williamsburg.
