There was something about the architecture of the old Colonial Governor's Palace in Williamsburg that called to me. Maybe it was the rock solid Georgian architecture? I'm not sure, but each day that I visited Williamsburg found me at some point standing on the village green in front of the palace.
It's hard to tell in Williamsburg what is new and what's not. They've done an incredibly detailed job reconstructing the buildings that were long ago lost to time, and the Royal Governor's palace is one of those buildings. After the Governor fled during the revolution, the building was pressed into other services and in the years after, it later burned to the ground.
Hard to believe that as you gaze over the palace walls isn't it? It has a great air of colonial heritage to it.
