Description

Interior of the Conference Room, Capitol building, 1935. The Conference Room, located in the east wing on the second floor of the Capitol, served as a joint committee room for members of the House of Burgesses and the Governor's Council. Acting as a bridge between the two sides of the legislature, the room provided a neutral spot where members could negotiate compromises or debate issues.

Interior furnishings and decor reflect curators' views in the 1930s as to how Williamsburg's historic interiors may have looked in the eighteenth century. Nevertheless, with new research advancements over the years, the interiors of the Governor’s Palace have changed to reflect a more authentic and accurate view of the building’s likely contents and room arrangements.
