    Reproduced from an original watercolor by Williamsburg artist Marcia Long, this beautiful giclee print offers the perfect opportunity to bring your favorite memories of the Historic Area into your home.

    In 1785 Dr. Philip Barraud, a Virginia-born physician who studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh following service in the Revolutionary War, purchased the house from Mrs. Susannah Riddle. Barraud served on the Board of Visitors at the College of William and Mary and was visiting physician at the Public Hospital from 1795 until he became director of the Norfolk Marine Hospital in 1799. Two years later he sold his house in Williamsburg to Anna Byrd, a widow, who proceeded to use it as a boarding house.

    Beautifully matted, set under glass, and framed in gold, this image is part of series created by Long to capture the gracious landscape of Colonial Williamsburg's Historic Area.
    Like most buildings in 18th-century Williamsburg, the Barraud House was altered to suit changing needs and fashion. As originally built, the front of the house probably looked much like the asymmetrical façade of the Moody House standing on the other side of Francis Street. The original plan most likely consisted of two front rooms and two smaller back rooms.
