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

    This tavern, The Red Lion Inn was one of Williamsburg's first public houses. During the 18th century, the house was involved in litigation and as a result, a contemporary drawing of the Duke of Gloucester street elevation is still in existence. Francis Sharp received colonial lots #57 and #58 from the trustees of the city on May 15, 1713 but apparently did not build on them in the required two year period and the lots escheated. They were re-deeded on May 5, 1717 and on May 19, 1718 Sharp received a license to operate an ordinary in the 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.
    The Red Lion was such a popular name for taverns that in Essex County, England, alone there were 32 Red Lion Inns. They were also found widely scattered throughout the American colonies. This tavern was owned by John Crump at the beginning of the 19th century and insured in 1802 at which time it was 48 x 27 feet, one story high, and again in 1815 at which time the building had a brick kitchen behind the eastern portion of the house and a wooden one behind the western portion. It was then tenanted by two different tenants, who later purchased portions of the house.
