I LOVE Williamsburg so learning about the structures in the restored area adds to my love of the city. So glad there was foresight years ago to recognize the significance of the history of the city and its buildings.
Excellent book. I had been waiting for the updated version of Williamsburg Before and After which I bought years ago.
What a great resource with beautiful photographs.
It is a great sequel to the original book
Outstanding book on the restoration efforts past and present.
This book is absolutely stunning. Amazing to see the transformation of Colonial Williamsburg and learn the depth of its history. You will not regret purchasing this magnificent book.
EVEN better than the first THANK YOU for great info
This excellent update of “Williamsburg: Before and After” is well worth the investment, even if you already have the previous edition. Much more expansive and inclusive, particularly regarding the enslaved community, without which Williamsburg would not have survived. It is a valuable addition to the Williamsburg collection.
