This Eve doll is made up from people just like Eve brought to America as enslaved persons from Africa and the West Indies. Their African customs and strong sense of community influenced everything in Williamsburg and grew into a special culture. Eve lived in the capital city of Williamsburg in a house near the Governor's Palace. Children will love playing with this doll dressed in a green jacket, skirt and navy plaid apron and hair wrap.

Colonial Williamsburg's African-American interpretive programs re-create and interpret the role of 18-Century Africans and African-Americans in the community tie. By preserving the Historic Area and depicting the lives of the diverse people who lived in 18th- century Williamsburg, we are striving to help the future learn from the past.
Although this doll is dressed in carefully researched period clothing, the appearance is vastly different from 18th-century dolls. The most common dolls in the colonies during most of the period would have been simply carved wooden figures, sometimes with hinged arms and legs for posing.
