Part 1 of The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation Archive Series: Early Stories of the Restoration.

Filmed in 1951, this documentary explains the mission of John D. Rockefeller Jr. and Dr. W.A.R. Goodwin in the 1920s to restore Williamsburg to a colonial American icon.

Through the painstaking research of curators, historians, and architects, the town's restoration plan is mapped out. This vast undertaking leads to mid-century historical interpretation about the importance of the people and ideas of Williamsburg that forged a new nation.

Extra features: "The City of Williamsburg-Harvard Footage" (1930), a silent black and white film that shows Williamsburg as a sleepy southern town with dirt roads that is about to be transformed; and "Colonial Williamsburg Produced by the March of Time" (1942), a wartime film that shows off Williamsburg as an attraction, from history to shopping to lodging.
