Established to preserve America’s history and share stories of the past, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation oversees a variety of educational programs and online resources. It also pursues archaeological research in conjunction with technological innovation to help bring the history of the nation in a bright and vibrant manner to individuals alive today.

One of the foundation’s recent projects includes the creation of a virtual Williamsburg, a three-dimensional re-creation of the town meant to represent May 15, 1776, when the fifth Virginia Convention took place. This project builds upon the research of archaeologists, curators, and historians to immerse viewers in history through assistance from cutting-edge technologies such as CAD and 3D modeling software.

More information is available to explore Virtual Williamsburg and catch a glimpse into life in the 18th century at research.history.org/projects/virtual-williamsburg.
