For much of the Revolutionary War, George Washington’s home was a large oval-shaped tent, which was the first “oval office.” This summer and fall, Historic Trades tailors are reproducing the tent as part of a new partnership between Colonial Williamsburg and the Museum of the American Revolution. Once complete, the reproduction tent will be used for a variety of educational and outreach programs, in advance of the opening of the Museum of the American Revolution in 2016.
Stop by the Secretary’s Office in Colonial Williamsburg’s Revolutionary City or visit the live webcam to watch the project unfold. Learn more on our blog and stay up-to-date with our Facebook page.
