When we travel to Williamsburg, Virginia, to see the history of the U.S., we spend all of our time right in Williamsburg. So, in one trip, we ventured a little farther afield to see this historic American institution of higher education. It is so old that it is only surpassed by Harvard in terms of longevity. We found that odd, Harvard is known to practically every American, but William and Mary, despite its history (and academic successes), is not.
Anyhow, we walked around and saw the beautiful old buildings. There are several statues of famous historical figures and many educational signs, including engraved plaques, around the campus. This was an interesting and worthwhile experience.
