Description

View looking towards the fireplace of the Wren Building's Great Hall, College of William & Mary, taken by F.S. Lincoln in 1935. Professors and students gathered at the long tables and benches to dine and converse during the colonial era. The room also served as a place to hold meetings and the House of Burgesses met here when the Capitol underwent renovations.

A bust of George Washington, who became an early chancellor of the college, stands in the corner.
