Governor’s Palace Colonial Williamsburg

Governors Palace

When the Governor’s Palace was completed in 1722, the residence of Virginia’s royal governor was considered one of the finest buildings in British North America. The elegant and imposing residence of seven royal governors and the commonwealth’s first two state governors—Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson—was reconstructed on its original foundations and opened to the public in April 1934.
