Celebrate the tradition of Southern seafood as captured in this delightful crab ornament from the sign of one of the Historic Area's favorite taverns, Christiana Campbell's. In the 18th century, Williamsburg's taverns provided comfortable lodgings for travelers as well as places to gather for meals, conversation, and entertainment. Today, Colonial Williamsburg's historic dining taverns carry on these traditions by providing a relaxed and comfortable setting for diners to experience some of the flavor of the 18th century. This custom-designed hanging tin ornament can be a wonderful complement to your kitchen wall, Christmas tree, or add it to a wrapped package's bow for an extra special holiday gift. Safe for outdoor use.
Widowed in the mid 1750's with two small children, Christiana Campbell drew on knowledge of the tavern business that her father had taught her to open, what would be, a prosperous tavern in the colonial capital of Williamsburg. George Washington was a faithful customer of this establishment known for Giving Satisfaction to Travelers and Townspeople with a Taste for Seafood. Today, the tavern serves dishes inspired by those the founding father would have enjoyed during his travels throughout the colonies.
