Always enjoy going into the Wythe house. The tour is great and gives great historical references to important people of the time, architecture, decor, gardens, etc. One of the best house tours in Colonial Williamsburg.

One of the best houses Colonial Williamsburg has to offer for a visit and tour. Rich in history and this time they had twin baby lambs.

The Wythe home is a well-preserved home with time-period furnishings and a lovely garden. We enjoyed walking through it.

The house is large for the time. High ceilings in large rooms, impressive staircase to a large set of rooms upstairs. The backyard is what I liked best. Individual plots for different vegetables, multiple hills of potatoes, sheep and chickens. Also a large dove house.

The bannister is original and I felt such awe that i could touch the same wood as a young Thomas Jefferson touched as he stayed in this house. Many patriots stayed or lived here at times and many artifacts are original.

Always a great narration by one of the knowledgeable guides. Mr Wythe was a man of wealth and you should see this house to see how the Upper Crust lived

I didn't remember learning about George Wythe in history class. This self-guided historic site was informative as the re-enactors were knowledgeable and told me new things. I enjoyed the Cooper, and seeing the wood-working and learning that these staff supply all of the buckets, barrels,...More

A Colonial Williamsburg ticket is required. You are ushered into an outbuilding to receive an introduction to the house. On chilly days the guide will have a fire in the fireplace. From this point on your tour is self-guided. You then may walk the grounds...More
