Pillow Fighting 101

This picture is what a vacation in Williamsburg is all about. After a long ride, waiting to get checked in and unloading the car––kids cannot resist the sheer joy of bolting thru the hotel room door and giving that bed the true test. In a way it’s the first really fun thing the kids get to do on vacation, and we absolutely love it. On page 82 in this magazine, our members have put together a list of what we have to offer you and your family. Whether you are watching your pennies, camping out, seeking the quaint pleasures of a B&B or 800 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets–– we have a place for you that will fit you and yours perfectly. If you need some help finding the best location for your family’s pillow fight, call our friends at the Greater Williamsburg Tourist Information Center and they will do their best to get you the information that you need to make the most of your well-deserved time off. 1-800-446-9244 We look forward to seeing you and don’t get on the kids too much about jumping on the bed. It’s one of those small pleasures in life and we really don’t mind. goWilliamsburg.com

LOCAL LEGENDS

Crim Dell Bridge

Local Legends MYTHS AND TRADITIONS OF WILLIAMSBURG Echo Spot in Tyler Garden Located in the Tyler Garden on the College of William & Mary campus is a Williamsburg tradition that only a handful of people know about outside of the student population. Known as the Echo Spot, this circular brick corner of the garden has three statues, one directly next to the other, each with bronze busts representing a member of the Tyler family. These members include Lyon Gardiner Tyler, the 17th president of William and Mary, his father, John Tyler, who was not only the 10th President of the U.S., but also served as the chancellor and rector of the College, and Lyon Gardiner Tyler’s grandfather, John Tyler, who was the 18th governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. If you stand here, with your back towards the statues (facing James Blair Hall) and speak, you can hear a strange acoustic sound as if your words are being reverberated. Some say this sensation is the statues talking back to you. This only happens if you stand directly in the center and bystanders will not be able to experience the echo themselves—only the speaker. Try it yourself!

Flying Fireball at Bacon’s Castle In the fall of 1675, the Virginia colonists witnessed something they have never seen before. A comet flew across the sky with a tail of fire following directly behind it. But this peculiar object in the sky wasn’t what scared the colonists. They were more frightened by the fact that they believed the comet would haunt them for years to come for it was “omen” cursing the area. Today, locals know this as the tale of the fireball at Bacon’s Castle. Soon after the comet was spotted, thousands goWilliamsburg.com

of pigeons blackened the sky for days on end. Then, in the spring of 1676, a heavy plague of locusts swarmed the area. As if the colonists weren’t already worried the omen curse was really coming true, it wasn’t until the summer of 1676 that this worry became a reality. On a Sunday morning in 1676, Nathan Bacon, the man who inspired the name of Bacon’s Castle, was captured by Governor Berkley’s troops. Although Bacon eventually escaped, he was unable to pursue his plans for rebellion. He caught malaria in the fall of 1676 and died quickly after. Today, there are several ghost stories told at Bacon’s Castle. But one that everyone fears the most is the Flying Fireball. Witnesses claim that the ball of fire rises from the Old Lawne’s Creek Church cemetery and then slowly drifts north. A former owner claims he saw the light outside of his window thinking his barn was on fire. Another witness saw the ball circling his bed and then flying out the window. A group of people at a meeting outside the church say they saw the ball of fire as well. What causes the light at Bacon’s Castle? No one has yet to know.

The Mother-in-Law Tree In 1687, the Harrisons, a local and wealthy family living in the Jamestown area, betrothed their daughter Sarah to young man she was not fond of. However, Sarah rebelled against her parents’ demands because she was in love with another man named James Blair, a 31-year-old who her parents did not approve of. So much so that they even tried to disown Sarah for her attempts to be with him. Against her parents’ will, Sarah married James anyways. Even after the wedding her mother swore she would continue to ruin their relationship until they separated.

A few years later, Sarah’s mother, father and little sister were killed during a terrible storm, yet Sarah and James continued to live happily together. Sarah died in 1713 and James in 1743. They were buried next to each other in Jamestown. Within a year after their burial, a sycamore tree started to grow directly in between their graves. The growth of the tree caused Sarah’s tomb to be pushed 7 feet—6 inches from her parents’ graves. By the 1970s the tree finally died out and was cut down, but within a few months another sycamore grew in its place in the same spot. The sapling was removed. Another sycamore sprouted. After several occurrences, the caretakers of Jamestown gave up on trying to remove the tree from in between Sarah and James’ graves, so the tree is still there today. No one touches that sycamore tree for everyone in the area believes if something were to happen to it, another one would grow no matter what. Sarah’s mother swore she would continue to keep her daughter and James apart and since she couldn’t do it alive, her spirit is determined to do it after her death—so it seems.

Lord Botetort Statue Norborne Berkeley, Baron de Botetourt was a governor of the Virginia Colony from 1768 to 1770 and also served as a member of the Board of Visitors at the College of William & Mary. During his time as governor, the people of the Virginia colony were very fond of him, so a statue was built in his honor at the Old Capitol building, which was purchased by the College of William & Mary in 1801. Since then the statue has moved several times. It was transferred to the Public Asylum for safety during the Civil War and then again in the Earl Gregg Swem Library’s Botetourt Gallery in 1966. A bronze replica of the statue was built by an alumnus in the College Yard for the 1993 College of William & Mary Homecoming. It is a tradition to dress the statue up for every holiday such as hanging a wreath around his neck or outstretched hand.

Crim Dell Bridge The Crim Dell Bridge is a wooden bridge on the campus of the College of William & Mary and is considered as one of the area’s most scenic views. Here you will find the red and cream colored bridge that crosses over a beautiful pond surrounded by a natural scenery and peaceful atmosphere. Rumor has it that if two lovers cross the bridge with one another and kiss at the crest that they will be together forever. But if that couple separates at that point instead, then the lady must throw her ex-lover into the water and break the curse of being single forever. It is also said that if someone crosses the Crim Dell Bridge alone, they will continue to be alone forever. SECOND EDITION | WHMA VISITOR’S GUIDE  11

WHERE MODERN EXCITEMENT MELDS WITH THE PAST

eaving cobblestone streets are home to quaint specialty shops and eateries. Flowing swiftly nearby, the James River creates a picturesque setting for your visit. Historic finds are at every turn amid the enchanting scenery found in the fabric of the region. Throughout Williamsburg and the Historic Triangle, modern amenities meld with the past, and the future flourishes from the rich history of the area. The Historic Triangle, also known as the birthplace of American Democracy, is comprised of three cities: Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. If you’ve ever skimmed an American history book, chances are you’ve heard of this area, where the settlers sent by London’s Virginia Company first landed on the sandy shores of Jamestown; where the first ideas of a revolution from Britain were kindled in Williamsburg; and where one of the

16  WHMA VISITOR’S GUIDE | SECOND EDITION

most critical of all Revolutionary War battles was waged along the waters of Yorktown. History buffs will enjoy visiting the famous battlefields, buildings and plantations that make the Historic Triangle what it is today. Even the children will delight in an afternoon at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown or exploring and experiencing the daily lives of the settlers at the Jamestown Settlement, including life as a soldier. Have you ever wanted to step into the shoes of a Colonial solider? Now you can! At Colonial Williamsburg’s musket range, fire off real weapons in true Colonial fashion. Now that you’re inspired and ready for adventure, get acquainted with the famous amusement park, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, with fast-paced roller coasters, a world-class entertainment scene and a guaranteed full day of fun for all ages. While Busch Gardens does have a great selection of souvenirs, the Historic Triangle itself is bursting with everything from high-end, luxury boutiques to the best in outlet shopping. From the fabulous shops found along Riverwalk Landing in Yorktown to the old-world-inspired stores dotting the streets of Merchants Square in Williamsburg, this is a savvy shopper’s dream. By this time, you’ve probably worked up a proper appetite. Satisfy your stomach with culinary delights from a multitude of restaurants

in the Historic Triangle, many with awe-inspiring waterfront views and that old-fashioned charm that’s hard to find elsewhere. Whether you’re on a romantic date or having dinner with the family, Tuscany Italian Ristorante serves authentic Italian pastas, delectable dinner entrees and a variety of fine wines seven days a week. Toast to your vacation over a glass—or two— of wine made right here at the Williamsburg Winery. If beer is more your thing, imbibe with a brew at Alewerks Brewing Company. Interested in sipping a sweet, unique libation? Head to Silver Hand Meadery for a glass of historic, handcrafted mead. These and other fine establishments can be found on the Williamsburg Tasting Trail. If you’re on the thirstier side, visit them all! Drink Williamsburg provides transportation to five establishments in one delicious afternoon. When the sun goes down, allow a mystery to unfold while you’re served a four-course meal at Mystery Dinner Theater in Fort Magruder Hotel. Then, don’t forget to stroll along the Historic Area’s up-lit iconic buildings including the Governor’s Palace, the Magazine, Courthouse, Capitol and the Public Hospital.

The new permanent exhibition galleries feature a more hands-on learning experience. Outside, the living-history Continental Army encampment and Revolution-era farm continue as part of the museum experience. The encampment and farm support the new gallery storylines and expand the area for visitorparticipatory demonstrations. The Moss family, an 18th-century family of farmers, live just outside the encampment. Visit their farmhouse, complete with a kitchen, tobacco barn and a new building representing the quarters for enslaved people. Walk through the crop fields that would have grown during that time. To learn more about the American Revolution Museum, visit HistoryIsFun.org.

Reading The Buildings By Don Harrison

the chesapeake house uncovers the true art of fieldwork done by colonial williamsburg historians and provides a new view of early american architecture

C

arl Lounsbury is used to letting folks down gently. “Their buildings are often not as old as people think,” Lounsbury, senior architectural historian at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, says about people who send the museum photographs of their houses. “We urge them to do it, but it can be disappointing to them. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve had to give the bad news: ‘No, George Washington did not live in your house or stay there.’” The College of William & Mary history professor and his accompanying team of historians are so seasoned and battle-tested that not only can they tell you whether Ol’ George stayed in your crib but also the likely room where he ate his supper. The team of experts, has surveyed hundreds of houses, structures and plantation foundations from across the region. Their groundbreaking research has been compiled into a new book, The Chesapeake House. Beautifully designed with hundreds of photographs, period landscape paintings and floor

plans, The Chesapeake House isn’t just a coffee table tome about the Coastal Virginia region’s stately buildings, it’s a look at the CW Foundation’s ongoing puzzle-solving. The Chesapeake House is filled of mysteries like that, scraped away like paint until a garish glaze of truth, a secret nail, a loose piece of wallpaper, is revealed. “Sometimes when we go look at these old buildings,” Lounsbury says, “We think we know what the story is, but the more we look the more confused we get.”

SEE & DO

The Real Early Virginia: Much Less Grand Than What You See At Colonial Williamsburg Here’s some bad news right off the bat: Early Virginia was not exactly like the scenes you see depicted at the many restored residences overseen by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, which was founded in 1927 by John D. Rockefeller to help preserve the original architecture of the region. Co-editor Cary Carson, the retired vice president of Colonial Williamsburg’s research division, breaks it to us gently in The Chesapeake House introduction: “Millions of visitors to Williamsburg find it hard to forget the handsome public buildings where so much American history took place.” But, he adds, time travelers would also encounter “other landscapes,” less familiar to today’s tourists—a countryside populated with ordinary people on smaller farms, modest houses, ramshackle buildings—structures that had less of a chance to survive than the houses of the local grandees, which make up most of the Colonial Williamsburg experience today. “We sort of dissect it like a forensic crime investigator,” Graham says. They tease out the structure’s sequence of development—what did it originally look like, how did it change? “And then we want to figure out why it changed—why people made the decisions that they made.” Usually, he says, there’s a pattern to these changes—a societal pattern. Buildings were usually designed by the clients themselves, and in a very traditional way. Lounsbury: “A tobacco planter would call up a carpenter and say, ‘Build me a house like Mr. Smith’s house over there.’ And carpenters would build the same way from one house to the next until someone told them something differently.” All of the little details make up the Chesapeake House’s evolution. “Especially the timber framing, the way Chesapeake carpenters framed their houses was certainly far different than anywhere else—New England, Old England, Ireland, South Carolina. And it finally evolved into a peculiar regional form that addressed distinctive needs.” “It wasn’t like they were starting new with new ideas,” adds Willie Graham, who knows a little about timber framing. “They were basically in the wilderness. It was physically different. Initially there just wasn’t room for lavish building because the structure had to be efficient and quickly erected.” By the middle of the 17th century, virtually all planters, rich and poor, were building some version of what they first called the Virginia House. “They still had wind chimneys and dirt floors,” Graham says. “But by the 18th century, they’d created an efficient way to use the materials on hand, particularly wooden materials.” Construction became, as Lounsbury says, “a matter of technology, materials, climate and attitudes toward building.” Concerning the latter, the mindset of our forebears is often reflected in their construction habits. “The early settlers encountered an environment that was difficult and actually detrimental to their health so that they didn’t have great prospects for living long lives.” The result was that they would build cheap houses to just last their lifetime. “But not build for the future.” So when settlers started to build better homes in the New World, it showed that they were here for the long haul. “In the beginning, they were just trying to survive,” Graham says. “But certainly by the second quarter of the 17th century, there are people coming here to stay.” You can read it in their houses.

M

erchants Square began in 1928 as a vision of revitalization by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., the son of the Standard Oil CEO. The plan was to relocate the scattered shops in the district to a central location along what is now known as Duke of Gloucester Street, between the College of William & Mary and the Historic District. Merchants Square was designed to incorporate the many perspectives that helped shape the British Colonial and early American landscape, mixing the designs of American architects, such as Thomas Jefferson, with the building influences of Caribbean warehouses. Today, Merchants Square boasts more than 40 shops and restaurants, from Colonial-inspired souvenirs, a classic candy store and a William & Mary campus store, to cooking and kitchen supplies, men’s and women’s fashion, fine jewelry and accessories and quaint bookstores. Local restaurants entice visitors with a wide range of rich and savory entrées for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and some places even provide live musical entertainment for guests to enjoy while they dine. Merchants Square hosts an abundant number of events each week. On Sunday evenings beginning at 6 p.m., The Trellis Bar and Grill invites you to listen in as The Hark plays rocking tunes to start your week off. From March through November, Merchants Square hosts a weekly farmers market every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon. At the farmers market, you are sure to walk away with the best in locally sourced vegetables, pasture-raised meats, fresh bread, homemade pastries, eggs and more.

Jamestown Settlement A

A MUSEUM OF 17TH-CENTURY VIRGINIA

t Jamestown Settlement, a living-history museum of 17thcentury Virginia history and culture, discover the story of America’s first permanent English colony, founded in 1607 in the midst of Virginia’s Powhatan Indian chiefdom, and the ensuing convergence of diverse cultures, vividly recounted through film, expansive indoor gallery exhibits and outdoor living history. Aboard life-size replicas of the three 1607 ships—Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery—visitors will get a sense of the spirit of opportunity that motivated the Jamestown colonists as well as the difficult living conditions endured by 17th-century voyagers. In the museum’s re-created fort, learn how the colonists coped with an unfamiliar environment and brought English customs to the New World. Visitors also will discover the culture of the Powhatan Indians in a re-created village. The museum, operated by the Commonwealth of Virginia’s JamestownYorktown Foundation, is located about a mile from the original site and 10 minutes from Williamsburg.

Film and Exhibits Chronicle America’s Beginnings in 1600s Virginia A visit to Jamestown Settlement begins with a docudrama film, “1607: A Nation Takes Root,” that presents an overview of the first two decades of the Virginia colony. A “great hall” spanning the length of the museum’s exhibition galleries provides, with illustrations and text, a chronological journey from 1600 to 1699, when the capital of Virginia moved from Jamestown to Williamsburg. Exhibition galleries—featuring period artifacts, dioramas, short films, and interactive exhibits— chronicle the nation’s 17th-century beginnings in Virginia in the context of its Powhatan Indian, English and west central African cultures. Full-scale dioramas portraying a Powhatan Indian setting and a dwelling in Angola, homeland of the first Africans in Virginia and an English streetscape all set the stage for exhibits that delve into a vast range of topics. An exhibit gallery featuring a scale model of a 1607 Powhatan community explores the complexity of the relationship between Virginia’s colonists and the native Powhatan people. Exhibits also show how the English secured a foothold in Virginia with the establishment of settlements and economic enterprises and set the course of the future with the introduction of tobacco CONTINUED ON PAGE 28 goWilliamsburg.com

as a cash crop. While the first documented Africans to arrive in Virginia in 1619 may eventually have won their freedom, the emergence of lifetime servitude for later African immigrants was motivated by the demand for labor to produce tobacco. An object theater chronicles African encounters with Europeans and the development of the transatlantic slave trade. Exhibits also offer an overview of the political, social and economic development and expansion of the Virginia colony during the 17th century, while Jamestown served as its capital. Full-scale structures re-created from archaeological sites depict Powhatan, slave and planter dwellings of the late 1600s. Short films describe the evolution and impact of government in 17th-century Virginia and the legacies of Jamestown that were the seeds of the United States of America.

Outdoors in the re-created Powhatan Indian village, historical interpreters discuss and demonstrate the Powhatan way of life. The village, consisting of several dwellings, a garden and a circle of carved ceremonial posts, is based on archaeological findings at a site once inhabited by Paspahegh Indians, the Powhatan tribal group closest to Jamestown, and descriptions recorded by English colonists. From the Powhatan Indian village, a path leads to a pier where the Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery are docked. Visitors can talk with costumed interpreters about the four-and-a-half-month voyage from England and take part in periodic demonstrations on piloting and navigation, knot-tying and sail-handling. Inside the wooden palisade of Jamestown Settlement’s re-created colonial fort are wattle-and-daub structures with thatched roofs representing Jamestown’s earliest buildings. Interpreters demonstrate activities typical of daily life during the 1610–1614 time period and provide daily demonstrations of matchlock musket firing. Visitors are welcome to handle many of the 17th-century reproduction items used in Jamestown Settlement’s outdoor living-history program: grind corn, help make darts in the Powhatan Indian village and, in the fort, try on armor.  Special events and programs include “Military Through the Ages” in March, “Jamestown Day” in May, “Historic Trades Fair” in June, “American Indian Intertribal Powwow” in October, “Foods & Feasts of Colonial Virginia” in November and “A Colonial Christmas” in December. Opening July 15 through January 28, 2018, visitors can view the special exhibition, “Pocahontas Imagined.” Jamestown Settlement, located on Route 31 South, is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and until 6 p.m. from June 15 through August 15. You should allow three hours for your visit. 2017 admission is $17 for adults and $8 for ages 6–12.

Personal stories of citizens and soldiers caught up in the American Revolution unfold in the introductory film, “Liberty Fever,” setting the

stage for experiences in expansive exhibition galleries. A truly national perspective comes to life in exhibit settings featuring nearly 500

In the museum theater, “Liberty Fever” introduces visitors to the world of Revolutionary America. The film is narrated by an early 19thcentury storyteller who has traveled the country gathering stories about the American Revolution and shares his accounts using a moving panorama presentation of the time period. The permanent exhibition galleries engage visitors in the tumult, drama and promise of the Revolution through period artifacts and immersive environments, dioramas, interactive exhibits and short films. Among the 500 artifacts on exhibit are a Declaration of Independence broadside dating to July 1776; a June 1776 Philadelphia printing of the Virginia Declaration of Rights, one of the inspirations for the U.S. Declaration of Independence; a coronation portrait of King George III from the studio of Allan Ramsay; one of the two earliest known portraits done from life of an African who had been enslaved in the 13 original colonies; and an extremely rare early southern American long rifle.

Visitors Interact With Historical Interpreters in Outdoor Settings The living-history Continental Army encampment and Revolution-era farm continue as an integral part of the museum experience, and newly expanded and reconstructed interpretive areas support the new gallery storylines and expand capacity for visitor-participatory demonstrations. The encampment, which represents a portion of an American regiment and includes tents for soldiers and officers as well as surgeon’s and quartermaster’s quarters, allows visitors to join costumed historical interpreters on a drill field and in an artillery demonstration area with tiered seating that from the outside looks like a redoubt. Situated just beyond the encampment, the farm features a larger house, kitchen and tobacco barn and a new building representing quarters for enslaved people, along with crop fields, corncrib and kitchen garden. A specific 18th-century York County family serves as a frame of reference for historical interpretation. The museum’s inaugural special exhibition, “AfterWARd: The Revolutionary Veterans Who Built America,” through November 27, 2017, explores the post-war stories of veterans of the Siege of Yorktown and how they went on to shape the America we know today. A series of plays, performances and public lectures June through November complement the special exhibition. Special events and programs include “Liberty Celebration” in July, “Yorktown Victory Celebration” in October, “Foods & Feasts of Colonial Virginia” in November and “A Colonial Christmas” in December.   American Revolution Museum at Yorktown is located at 200 Water Street and is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and until 6 p.m. from June 15 through August 15.

Americans won their independence here during the last major battle of the American Revolutionary War on October 19, 1781, when British troops surrendered to General George Washington and his French allies. Yorktown played a very important role in American history. Today, Yorktown is joined by the scenic Colonial Parkway to Williamsburg and Jamestown and is located just 12 miles east of Williamsburg. It remains much as it was during the waning days of the Revolution. Although Yorktown is best known as the site where America won its independence, you can be sure that no battles are being fought here today, which leaves Yorktown a charming and peaceful riverside village. Whether it’s reliving the chronicles of America’s struggle for independence, touring the historic homes and battlefields, visiting our museums, taking a leisurely stroll, a trolley tour, watching a fifes and drums parade, enjoying the many unique outdoor, shopping and dining experiences or just relaxing by the river, York­town has something for everyone. Plan to stay overnight or longer at a hotel, bed and breakfast inn, or guest cottage overlooking the water or up the hill in the village. Yorktown is a yearround destination for history, outdoor recreation, fine dining, unique shopping and special events.

Explore nearby areas such as the Jamestown Settlement where kids can climb into a sailor’s bunk, steer with a whipstaff, or simply wander through one of the three re-created ships that brought the first English colonists to Virginia in 1607. Expand your child’s knowledge of Pocahontas and her fellow tribe members as you and your family stroll through the Powhatan Indian Village and interact with historical interpreters demonstrating how they would survive on a daily basis. A great way to get to know Williamsburg is to take a peaceful stroll down sidewalks and cobbled streets. Be sure to take time to visit the nearby towns, full of shopping, dining and beautiful surroundings. Enjoy dinner outside in Merchant’s Square, browse the unique shops in New Town or find a new appreciation for art in Smithfield. Music and the arts have the power to bring peace to any soul. If you enjoy live performances, soothing jazz, plays or featured films, then make your way over to Merchants Square. Here you will find inspiring performances as well as special events and thoughtprovoking movies. With a theatre hosting special events throughout the year, there is always a chance to witness inspiring creativity right before your eyes. After all that walking, be sure to book a session at a local spa, providing a relaxing experience, the perfect cap to a fun-filled vacation. Recline in a comfortable chair, please your ears with peaceful music and breathe in fresh air saturated with beneficial minerals. A therapeutic session at the Williamsburg Salt Spa will leave you feeling naturally rejuvenated and healthy without the use of medication. Or indulge in a facial or mani-pedi at one of the many area spas. You won’t want to miss out on the therapeutic, beautifying and healing experiences these locations offer. At the end of a long day, there’s nothing like kicking back with a great brew or a glass of wine. There are several wineries and breweries in and nearby Williamsburg offering Virginia-made libations with a distinct and delicious taste. Sample tastings of various food-friendly wines and brews, and make some tasty memories. Pair your favorite drink with a delicious meal at one of the bars or restaurants open late in the area. Play a game of pool while watching the game or simply sit at the bar and reminisce on old times. Having a laid-back night out never hurt anybody! goWilliamsburg.com

Looking Back the not so ancient history of williamsburg

M

ost people who come to Williamsburg have an idea about its history. Visitors come to see the 18th century buildings, the folks in historic dress wandering the streets and to learn more about the significance of the Revolutionary period in American history. If you dig a little, you may even know about how the Rockefeller’s came to town in the 1920s, restoring these important, historic locations and reestablishing Williamsburg as a living history museum. But to the people who call this place home, Williamsburg is more than its Colonial past. It’s a place where folks live their everyday lives. Williamsburg may be a city deeply rooted in its past, but it’s also a town in motion, looking forward to a bright future. If you want to learn about a place, speak to the people who know and love it. Doug Pons and Greg Granger are second generation Williamsburg residents. They’re also second generation hoteliers and prominent, local businessmen. Pons serves on the city council, and both men take an active role in shaping the city. They also happen to be life-long friends, their parents being William & Mary classmates. Over the last 50 years, they have seen Williamsburg transition from a small-town where everyone knows each other, to the burgeoning community it is today. The Williamsburg of Granger and Pons’ youth was a post-Rockefeller tourist hub. During the 1950s and ‘60s, the “explore America” vacation model was in full swing. Families were taking their kids on road trips, visiting national parks and historic locations. Williamsburg was abuzz with just such vacationers. The boys grew up among a bustling tourist industry. It was all about “the columns and the Colonial flair and that flavor that people believed you would find in Williamsburg,” says Granger. Yet even with the flux of tourists coming and 58  WHMA VISITOR’S GUIDE | SECOND EDITION

going, the town still possessed a small-town feel. These hotels served as jobsites for the two young men. Pons worked for his father, making beds and learning the hotel industry. Granger got his first job mowing grass at the local Days Inn. Both boys got into mischief, hopping the fences of the nicer hotels, pretending to be guests so they could swim in the pool. Greg even bought a necklace for his first date from Doug’s dad at the nearby Hospitality House. For them, Williamsburg wasn’t a stuffy, colonial museum—it was a living, breathing community. “What I really loved was that it was a small town,” says Pons. “You had connectivity to so many people. I think I knew everybody in my graduating class of 350 people at Lafayette— and there was only one high school then.” What’s now high-end shopping on Duke of Gloucester Street and Merchants Square, was just the main street of Doug Pons and Greg Granger’s childhood. They bought their clothes at the local Roses department store and watched movies at what is now Kimball Theatre.

“Everything that was on Duke of Gloucester Street was relevant to all of the residents of Williamsburg,” explains Pons. “You went to worship, you went to shop,” Granger adds. “Daily life happened there.” As the years went by, more and more people saw the potential that Williamsburg possessed. Immigrants from countries such as Greece and India saw the town as a place where, with hard work, they could make lives for themselves. “They’d write home,” explains Pons, “and they’d say, yes, this is a great place, and they will treat you well. If you work hard you can make something happen. And they did it.” These first-generation immigrants started out washing dishes and bussing tables, barely speaking English, and are now prominent citizens in Williamsburg with multiple businesses. Williamsburg itself is only nine-square miles, so growth has always been limited. What most people think of today as Williamsburg is actually James City County. In the early 1970s, this county was mostly wooded areas and farmland with a population in the 10,000 range. goWilliamsburg.com

The Foundations of James Fort are Discovered

The transition from its rural roots happened, as Doug Pons explains, “when James City County got beer and Busch Gardens.” Not only did AnheuserBusch bring the famed theme park, attracting more visitors than ever, they also built the Kingsmill Resort. “As that developed,” continues Pons, “it created an employment population, so other jobs started to grow.” Thus, James City County was developed, expanding the Greater Williamsburg area with more homes and businesses. James City County now has a population of around 90,000. As development continued, the population of the city of Williamsburg started to grow as well. “You used to know everybody,” says Granger. “Now it’s hard to know everybody in town.” Because of this, many of its original residents have started moving away because, as Granger explains, “Williamsburg has lost what they consider to be Doug Pons and Greg Granger

goWilliamsburg.com

that pride in place. It’s not the same town.” Although both Doug Pons and Greg Granger loved the Williamsburg of their childhood, they’re excited about the direction the city is moving in. “The hometown feel has kind of gone away,” says Pons, “but at the same time we had to evolve— the way we lived and our economy. If you’re not growing you’re dying. The community has grown.” Pons foresees that Williamsburg is on the cusp of some new and exciting changes. “It seems like we’re on a 50-year investment cycle. The Rockefeller’s came in the ‘20s. Fifty years later then Anheuser-Busch showed up and Busch Gardens, and so we had that major investment. So, we’re due for another investment and turnaround.” When asked what they think the next big Williamsburg attraction may be, Granger links it to the evolution of the family vacation model. The family vacation is not so much “go and learn about America and go to this really cool theme park.” The busy families of today are taking their kids on the sports trip. “Our kids are plugged into sports,” says Granger, “we’re excited about it. We want to support them.” That’s why they’ll go on weekend or week long vacations, centered around the kids’ tournaments or sporting events. With that in mind, both Granger and Pons think that the development of a multi-purpose fieldhouse or convention center would bring an influx of these type of travelers to the Greater Williamsburg area.

Talk of this is still in the speculative phase, but it’s an exciting idea that’s getting a lot of buzz. However, development in Williamsburg is tricky, Granger says. “Trying to make sure that you meet the demands of today’s world while keeping the charm of yesterday’s world is so hard.” Pons continues, “As a lifelong resident of Williamsburg and a current city council member, I think that’s one Sports-Centric Vacations of the things that Could be the Future of I feel responsible Tourism in Williamsburg for—trying to maintain our nine square miles. We try to protect that with smart development and with some oversight.” Both Doug Pons and Greg Granger are excited to be a part of the Williamsburg of tomorrow. The time is ripe to see the city transition into something new and exciting, while still maintaining its historic appeal. “It’s time for a refresh,” says Pons. “The future is bright for the city. It’s time for that next generation look at things.” —Rebekah Conley SECOND EDITION | WHMA VISITOR’S GUIDE  59

The Williamsburg Tasting Trail

T

experience williamsburg through your palate

here’s a new way to experience Greater Williamsburg, but one could say that it’s as old as this historic region. While early settlers were building forts and establishing their presence in the area, they also brewed their first beers and planted their first vines. They believed that alcohol had many beneficial purposes. Besides being a clean source of water, they believed it had healing properties and provided energy to the body. One could say that the Williamsburg area is not only the birthplace of America, it’s where we first learned to drink.

Drink culture is a rising trend in Williamsburg. In the last year, many new producers of fine alcoholic beverages have been opening their doors and welcoming patrons to imbibe. It’s not about getting drunk, but experiencing high quality, handcrafted beverages produced by pioneers in their field and sharing this experience with others. The enjoyment of these beverages is both a social and flavorful experience. Enter the Williamsburg Tasting Trail. This one-of-a-kind

With a distinctive Virginian flavor, this family-owned winery has a wide selection of wines that you won’t want to miss.

Next, the beers… Although microbreweries are a newer phenomenon, this craze has been sweeping the nation. Young and old alike are enjoying the variety of flavors that this industry produces. Breweries in Greater Williamsburg have appeared as strong contenders in this field. Their beverages range from dark, thick stouts to light and fruity saisons.

With 16 beers on tap daily, visitors are sure to find something they love at Alewerks Brewing Company. Be sure to grab a delectable halfpound soft pretzel with your lager.

Area bars and taverns are opened late, so don’t just turn in early! Grab a pint or a delicious cocktail and pair it with some amazing eats. Every good meal should end with a sweet morsel. Most area restaurants offer incredible dessert options, from bread pudding to New York cheesecake. There are also candy stores which offer delicious fudge, classic candy

apples and old fashioned hard candies. Williamsburg is an epicurean wonderland. If you’re of the adventurous sort, be sure to research ahead of time and plan your own dining tour. An appetizer here, sharing an entrée there, grabbing a scrumptious dessert—that way you won’t miss out on the many delectable offerings. If you don’t feel like doing the work yourself, then turn to Taste of Williamsburg. They offer a savory walking tour, stopping in at nearly ten eateries for a sampling of some of the area’s best bites. Learn more at www.TasteOfWilliamsburg.com. —Rebekah Conley
