Settled in 1633, Williamsburg was first known as Middle Plantation because it was located between the James and York rivers. In 1693, the nation's second-oldest institution of higher education, the College of William and Mary, was founded there. In 1699, the settlement became the capital of England's largest and richest colony, Virginia. These are just some of the many fascinating facts found in Williamsburg. This resourceful volume, filled with detailed historical information on the people and events surrounding the development of this colony, is an integral part of the new Colonial Settlements in America set.
