City of Williamsburg

Williamsburg, a city in the U.S. state of Virginia, was capital of the Virginia Colony from 1699 to 1780 and played a significant role in the American Revolution. It forms the “Historic Triangle” together with Jamestown and Yorktown. Its heart is Colonial Williamsburg, a historic district and living-history museum where actors in period costume depict daily Colonial life in the streets, stores and workshops.

The City of Williamsburg is set like a nucleus in James City County and is the location of The College of William & Mary. The College of William & Mary in Virginia is a public research university. Royally founded in 1693 by letters patent issued by King William III and Queen Mary II, it is the second-oldest institution of higher education in the United States after Harvard University, and the oldest in the American South.

Colonial Williamsburg is around the corner from William & Mary and is an amazing and timeless tourist attraction. Merchants Walks offer shopping, dining and exploration of America’s History frozen in time. The character and charm of the town brings you back every time.

The housing market around the City varies and limited in number. There are homes ranging in all price points with a number of bed & breakfast type properties along the main sections of town near the College. Behind and near those homes are single family homes a walk away from all the action. On the outskirts of town limits are luxury and custom homes in neighborhoods like Holly Hills, Richmond Hill, Yorkshire, Piney Creek Estates, all with the convenience of being near the College but close to all the necessities of Williamsburg and James City County.
