Statement of Significance (as of designation - October 9, 1960):
This was the Capital of Virginia (1699-1799) and the home of the College of William and Mary, chartered in 1693. Restoration of the district, begun in 1927, has recreated the atmosphere of 18th century Williamsburg.

The large in-house maintenance staff has specialized skills in the preservation/maintenance of historic structures. Two full-time architectural conservators oversee the maintenance activities and conduct condition assessments and conservation treatments on the structures.
