Our nation’s origin story begins in Williamsburg. From the voices that rang out in Raleigh Tavern, demanding colonial opposition to the Crown; to the declaration made in the Capitol, naming Virginia as a free state; to the peels of hymns from one of America’s first churches established by enslaved and Black worshippers, Williamsburg has always rung with the sounds of history.
