Colonial Williamsburg, located in Williamsburg, Virginia, is a fascinating place. Living so close by, my husband and I are frequent visitors.
Today, in the Charlton Coffee House, I snapped this photo of a young interpreter. He was very informative, and played his role well. And then, I manipulated the photo with the app, Paper Artist, on my Android phone…
Most of CW was funded by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., but the Charlton Coffee House was funded by the Mars family (yes, of candy fame). It’s a wonderful reproduction of the original coffee house that stood on the exact spot in 1766 near the Governor’s Palace and I’m grateful for the Mars’ generosity.
At the end of the presentation, guests have coffee, tea, or the colonial version of hot chocolate in the dining room, served in china cups with little teaspoons, cream and sugar. It really is sweet.
