Description

Exterior of Market Square Tavern, 1935. A welcoming glow from the windows of Market Square Tavern offered visitors to 1930s Colonial Williamsburg the ambience of stepping back in time. Constructed in 1749 by John Dixon, the tavern was extensively modified in the late nineteenth century and restored in the early 1930s. It has continuously provided accommodations for visitors to Williamsburg for several centuries.
