Eleanor Roosevelt in front of the Governor's Palace. Mrs. Roosevelt's visit to Colonial Williamsburg had a full schedule compared to other distinguished visitors. On her first morning in Williamsburg, Mrs. Roosevelt took tours of seven buildings before lunch at Chowing's Tavern. Mrs. Roosevelt would continue her whirlwind tour visiting the Capitol in the afternoon, taking a trip to Jamestown, shopping in Merchant's Square, visiting the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Collection, and finishing the busy day attending an organ recital at Bruton Parish Church.
