Which inn is located in Middle Plantation, an outpost of Jamestown and Virginia's capital 1699-1780?
If you guessed the Williamsburg Inn (1937) in Williamsburg, Virginia, you guessed correctly!
Williamsburg began as Middle Plantation, an outpost of Jamestown, in 1633. The city served as Virginia's capital from 1699 to 1780. Today this portion of the town is protected as the Colonial Williamsburg historic area and is recognized as one of the finest and most complete community restorations in the world, featuring some 500 buildings, including 88 structures original to the 18th century. The Williamsburg Inn, directly adjacent to the Historic Area, was built in 1937 by John D. Rockefeller Jr., whose support for preservation of the community was nurtured by a local minister. The Inn's whitewashed brick exterior, pediments, arches, and columns highlight its neoclassical design, with interiors offering the ambience of a comfortable Southern country estate.
In 2001, the Inn completed a full renovation resulting in substantially enlarged guest rooms, with elaborate marble baths and meticulously detailed refurbishment of its lobby, dining room, and meeting spaces.
