History of Williamsburg, VA
Williamsburg, VA, is steeped in tradition and history. Colonial Williamsburg, a district in the city that has been preserved to perpetually resemble the Colonial era of the 1700s, attracts tourist and history buffs who want to be fully immersed in a historical experience. Williamsburg was settled in 1638 by colonists for ease of travel on nearby waterways. Unlike other cities on the Virginia Peninsula, Williamsburg lies well above sea level, providing it with an unusual natural protection from Native American attacks. After the burning of Jamestown during one such attack, the capital of the Virginia Colony was moved to Williamsburg, and one of the first institutions of higher education was established - the College of William and Mary - by Thomas Jefferson. As the birthplace to many traditionally American ideas, Williamsburg remains an important city and a benchmark of American progress.
Business and Economy in Williamsburg, VA
Tourism drives many people to Williamsburg, VA, and is therefore an important part of the city's economy. Many Williamsburg residents live in the Colonial district and receive an income by dressing up as colonists and acting out roles of famous historical icons, such as Thomas Jefferson, and commoners relevant to the era. Many of these Colonial actors are permitted to live in the district's renovated houses, but strict restrictions apply to any modernization of the buildings. According to city-data.com, approximately a quarter of all people living in the city work in the educational services industry.
In part because of heavy tourist traffic, the world-famous Anheuser-Busch brewing company opened operations nearby, supplying beer and the Busch Gardens theme park to travelers and residents of Williamsburg, VA.
