A Convenient, Luxurious Bed & Breakfast in the Heart of Downtown Williamsburg
Williamsburg Lodging: Richneck Room
Maybe you were lucky enough to grow up in a place rich with history. If so, you can understand how the children of Williamsburg often feel like they are in a Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys adventure. Their woodland explorations can yield artifacts, perhaps leading to the discovery of a long-lost historic site.
The Richneck Room features a display of 17th, 18th and 19th century artifacts from just such a childhood expedition, resulting in the location and excavation of the 17th century Richneck Plantation.
The Plantation was founded by settlers who broke away from the original Jamestown
colony, but over time its location was lost, until the children of the proprietors discovered artifacts which were examined and cataloged by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
This room also features 19th century stained glass, a queen size bed and a cozy dormered atmosphere. Just the place for letting imagination run wild after a day of your own personal historic discoveries.
