Where’s where

Visitors to our area arrive in town ready to take in local attractions. Streets in Williamsburg can be unforgiving with their quirks and turns. Williamsburg isn’t configured in quite the same way that larger metropolitan areas may be. If you are motoring around town, remember that Route 199 is also called Humelsine Parkway. Route 60 West is Richmond Road, while 60 East is known as Pocahontas Trail. College Corner is where Richmond and Jamestown roads and North Boundary and Duke of Gloucester streets meet. Confusion Corner is at the intersection of Francis, Lafayette and York streets. And don’t forget about Ironbound Road. You will find it where The Virginia Gazette is located, and its continuation off Monticello Avenue.

City of Williamsburg Williamsburg was founded as the capital of the Virginia Colony in 1699. It was named Williamsburg in honor of England’s reigning monarch, King William III. Williamsburg was one of America’s first planned cities. It was laid out in 1699 under the supervision of Governor Francis Nicholson, and it quickly grew into the center of political, religious, economic and social life in Virginia. Famous political leaders emerged from the College of William & Mary, founded in 1693, including Presidents Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe and John Tyler.

The first hospital established in America for the care and treatment of mental illness was founded in Williamsburg in 1773. Gen. George Washington assembled the Continental Army in Williamsburg in 1781 for the siege of nearby Yorktown and the winning of American independence. The restoration of Williamsburg began in 1926, after the rector of Bruton Parish Church, the Rev. Dr. W.A.R. Goodwin, brought the city’s importance to the attention of John D. Rockefeller Jr., who then funded and led the massive reconstruction of the 18th century city. In 1934 Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed Duke of Gloucester Street, “the most historic avenue in America.” There is ongoing news in the city. As outlined in the City’s Goals, Initiatives & Outcomes and 2013 Comprehensive Plan, City Council is considering options for the future of the Stryker Building, which houses Council chambers The proposed new facility will advance the partnership between the City and the Williamsburg Regional Library to better meet the city’s governmental needs and to satisfy unmet demands for civic and community activity space.

government By 1634, the colony divided into eight counties, among them were James City and the Charles River - now known as York. The division into counties laid the foundation for strong local government that later served as a model to states as they were admitted into the union. Jamestown served for a brief time as the political, social and economic center of the Virginia colony. Every year until 1632, the Assembly met at the Jamestown church. The Assembly also possibly met in the governor’s home until 1699, when the capital was moved inland to Middle Plantation, which was renamed Williamsburg. Despite protests from county residents, the county seat for James City was moved from Jamestown to Williamsburg in 1715. The 400th anniversary of Jamestown was celebrated in 2007. There were numerous celebrations and commemorations. Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, visited our area to mark the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown.

James City County James City County is famous around the world for Jamestown, founded in 1607 as the first permanent English-speaking settlement in America. The seeds of independence were perhaps sewn as early as 1619 when English leaders ratified “The Great Charter of Privileges, Orders and Laws,” giving the new colony self-government. On July 30, 1619, 22 settlers gathered for the first Virginia Assembly to make laws to govern the new people of the colony. Jamestown, which evolved into James City County, was named for King James I. When King James revoked the charter of the London Company in 1624, Virginia became England’s first royal colony.

York County Independence won here Yorktown was the site of the decisive battle of the American Revolution where on October 19, 1781, Lord Cornwallis surrendered his British Army to the combined American-French forces under Washington and Rochambeau. Yorktown is part of the Historic Triangle with Jamestown and Williamsburg. The localities attract millions of tourists each year. Yorktown offers a chance to see 18th century homes or stroll a scenic riverfront beach. Visitors can park and meander along picturesque streets or take the free trolley. There are art galleries, antique stores and specialty shops for those who have a penchant to explore. There are also museums offering hands-on history programs and exhibits. The Riverwalk offers distinctive stores and restaurants and a lovely beach area. You may even get a chance to see a cruise ship or a tall ship visiting the pier. The York River provides an ideal place to catch some sun with family and friends. A walk through the town allows tourists and locals a glimpse of the past. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the town by listening to the Fifes & Drums of York Town. Of interest is a cannonball that has remained lodged in the brick home of Thomas Nelson after 200 years. Greeting visitors is the magnificent Victory Monument, which towers above the town and is a tribute to the American Revolution. Nearby the monument is the Moore House, where documents were drafted and signed for the British surrender to American and French forces. Self-walking tours lead visitors to the battlefield to learn about the siege of Yorktown, the Yorktown Monument, or to the waterfront, where the port was significant in the trading of slaves and tobacco.

News to you An indoor flea market is held 8 a.m.-noon on the first Saturday of each month at the Historic Triangle Community Services Building on Waller Mill Road. Admission is free. TREASURES 2014

Crape myrtles abound in our area. They begin blooming in July and their vibrant blossoms last for weeks. Visitors often remark about the trees and shrubs, which bloom in a variety of colors including white, pink, red and purple. Many landscape and garden centers carry the trees for planting. They do well in our climate and can provide color to any landscape. 23

Coles, a compassionate white landowner in Williamsburg, inspired by the worshipers’ stirring songs and soulful prayers, offered the use of his Carriage House on Nassau Street as a meeting place sometime in 1776.

News to you If you are strolling through Colonial Williamsburg, you may be able to take in a demonstration of colonial games in Market Square. There are plans for construction of a new Market House in the center of the Revolutionary City. The plan is to have the reconstructed Market House in use by 2015. When the new market house is complete, it will serve as the location for outdoor sales and will add to Revolutionary City experience.

The Gregory S. Adams Memorial Garden at the corner of Richmond Road and N. Boundary Street remains one of the hidden treasures of our area. The garden was dedicated in 1986 to the memory of Gregory S. Adams, a member of the W&M Class of 1981. The garden is popular for locals and visitors to see the beautiful flowers and plants that bloom throughout the year. The College of William & Mary estimates that 20,000 annual visitors tour the Adams Garden, photograph its plants and flowers, and sit and gather their thoughts on the garden’s benches.
