Like everything else in and around Colonial Williamsburg, this beautiful old house is rich with history. Be sure to visit and take yourself on the tour of the rooms. See how the gentry lived in 1776. Even by today's standards, it is a beautiful home.

Walk in the footsteps of the Patriots! See how our forefathers lived. As with all the restored homes, businesses, and seats of government in Colonial Williamsburg, this residence is a feast of living history.

This is a terrific example of historic housing of a significant, albeit lesser known figure. Wythe is a key figure influencing the likes of Thomas Jefferson, Henry Clay and John Marshall in his role as law professor at William and Mary.
