We met a delightful student who told us about Lieutenant Governor Spotswood' design of the rebuilt Wren Building and the fact that there is a Spotswood Society. The building is very old but has a wonderful chapel which is used for weddings and musical occasions,

Beautiful space to visit, and the Saturday morning organ recitals at 10:00 a.m. are the best free music in Williamsburg! Anyone can visit, but only William and Mary connected people can use the chapel for a wedding, memorial service, concert, etc.
