Enjoyed the history preserved here. If you like history, then you'll love this place. Cool display of colonial time. If you're in town, don't miss it.

My friend and I really enjoyed the tour of the palace and especially the impressive entryway and ballroom. The grounds were also beautiful.

The weapons display for decoration was amazing to see! The rest of the House was of course the same as other homes of that time frame. Very knowledgeable interpreters.

So much knowledge so little time to enjoy it. Unfortunately there were several school groups in attendance while we were there, it made the tour group larger than I would have preferred. I will be back to hear more about the Governors and their antics.

One of the highlights of our trip to Williamsburg! Beautifully restored to show what would have been.
