eWilliamsburg is a compendium of information about Williamsburg, Virginia, the eighteenth-century capital of England's largest North American mainland colony.


Today Williamsburg is the country's largest outdoor history museum where guests learn about the events that led to the creation of the American republic. Williamsburg, arguably the most studied colonial town in America, has been the subject of extensive historical, archaeological, and architectural research as part of the effort to restore and reconstruct the town beginning in the late 1920s and continuing to the modern day. eWilliamsburg offers map-based access to a digitized selection of original manuscripts, photographs, and reports documenting the research and restoration.
