Come enjoy a rare opportunity to visit with one of Colonial Williamsburg's Nation Builders as part of a small, intimate group. Meet an interpreter portraying a historical figure such as Thomas Jefferson, James Armistead Lafayette or Martha Washington at the St. George Tucker House-our donor reception center located in an original 18th-century building in the heart of the Historic Area. Discuss their lives in colonial Virginia, the news of the day and perhaps some Revolutionary politics, then following the in-character, learn more about the interpreter behind the Nation Builder. This program is available exclusively to donors who contribute $250 or more annually to the Colonial Williamsburg Fund. You can see the schedule for upcoming Nation Builder programs in This Week at a Glance. Please note the schedule is subject to change. A free ticket is required. Seating is limited.
