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.
The Brick House Tavern is rebuilt on its original foundations, constructed in the 1720s. William Withers, private secretary to Royal Gov. Dinwiddie, was among its early owners. In 1761, Dr. William Carter, a surgeon and prominent businessman, bought the property. Carter sold several rooms to a merchant and rented others to shopkeepers. Brick House Tavern was still providing rooms near the end of the War of 1812 when an American cavalry troop quartered there.
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.

About half of the properties in 18th-century Williamsburg were rented or leased at one time or another, dividing the population into landlords and tenants—the term used for renters. Rental properties were called "tenements"—without later negative connotations of urban overcrowding. They ran the gamut from Custis Square, an elaborate gentry estate with one of Virginia's finest gardens, to subdivided units in Dr. William Carter's Brick House Tavern.
