Originally Middle Plantation, a 1632 fortified settlement located on high ground on the Peninsula between the James and York rivers, it was renamed Williamsburg after the capital of the Virginia Colony was moved there from Jamestown in 1698. It became the center of political events in Virginia leading to the American Revolution.

As the "Colonial Capital" of Virginia, the city is internationally known for its restoration activities and re-creation of 18th-century America at Colonial Williamsburg. The Williamsburg area offers visitors exceptional historical, cultural and recreational activities and events throughout the year.
