Mrs Campbell's fine establishment was closed for the season, so this was just a photo-op. Besides, Bud's facing the wrong direction in a No Parking zone - I had to shoot and GO!

No worries of getting a DUI back then. But I'm sure you were much more judicious before getting back in your car.

Sorry, Kate, but the Taverns where they serve food aren't open for guests to stay overnight. But there are plenty of other possibilities to stay in original, restored 18th century buildings or recreated structures in Colonial Williamsburg. Go to www.history.org to find out more.

Can you still rent a room there while you're on vacation in Williamsburg?

Hospitality was a major industry in Williamsburg in the 18th century. Since Williamsburg was Virginia's Colonial Capitol, there were always men in town on their official business, and they would need places to stay while they were there. There are at least 6 or 8 restored or reconstructed taverns and inns in Colonial Williamsburg, all offering meals and lodging back in the 18th century. Bear in mind that they couldn't just come to town for the day and return home that evening unless home was within 10 miles or so. It wasn't practical to travel much more than about 50 miles on horseback in a full day, and that took a dedicated horseman!

Several of the taverns, like Christiana Campbell's, serve dinner to present-day visitors, something you should definitely try when you visit Williamsburg. Kind of pricey, but worth it!

Nice place. I wouldn't mind a house similar to that.
