You can almost hear the rattle of the carriage and smell the wood smoke on a crisp winter afternoon. The Historic Area Courthouse comes to life on this porcelain collectible ornament, the perfect memento of the holiday season to bring home and enjoy. Crafted of porcelain and framed in gold, this beautifully detailed ornament is a miniature work of art for your tree.
At Williamsburg's colonial Courthouse, built in 1770, debtors, thieves, card cheaters and pig stealers were tried before enthusiastic crowds of onlookers. The handsome building with its distinctive cupola was also the meeting place for Williamsburg's city council for more than 150 years. 
On May 1, 1783, Williamsburg's citizens assembled at their courthouse to celebrate the end of the war with England — just as they had gathered seven years earlier to hear lawyer Benjamin Waller proclaim from its steps the Declaration of Independence.
