For onsite help, pricesAt 256 pages, “Colonial Williamsburg: the Official Guide” is the first to focus on what happened in Williamsburg and why it mattered – then and now. For onsite help, prices, programming and directions, Colonial Williamsburg’s Explorer app, available by free download from the Apple App or Google Play stores, provides current information the way today’s travelers have come to expect. 

“We wanted our new guidebook to delve into the Revolutionary history behind the people, buildings and trades in the Historic Area,” said Bill White, the Royce R. and Kathryn M. Baker vice president of productions, publications and learning ventures for Colonial Williamsburg. “The Revolution sparked on the streets of Williamsburg changed the world. This is the book to consult before and after visiting to remember that this story – Colonial Williamsburg’s story – is the story of every modern citizen devoted to the ideals of the Declaration of Independence.” 

The book features a comprehensive history of Williamsburg during the Revolution, site-by-site and architectural histories, information on historic trades, profiles of Revolutionary figures, famous and not-so-famous, and a sampling of works from the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg. Also included is everything guests need to plan their visit, including information on hotels, taverns and restaurants, recreation and shopping. The guidebook has stunning new photographs, illustrations and maps and places Williamsburg in the context of its location between Yorktown and Jamestown. Additional information about the guidebook is available on Colonial Williamsburg’s 
“Making History” blog at http://bit.ly/MHGuideReview.

The new guidebook was printed in the United States and is available for $19.95 at WILLIAMSBURG Booksellers at the Regional Visitor Center, Everything WILLIAMSBURG in Merchants Square, at Colonial Williamsburg’s official hotel gift shops, online at 
www.williamsburgmarketplace.com or by calling 800-446-9240.
