Today on the Podcast:
Resurrecting the Market House
Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area is seeing a construction boom to rival the 1926 reconstruction efforts of John D. Rockefeller and W. A. R. Goodwin. Fresh on the heels of Charlton’s Coffee House and Anderson’s Armory Complex comes a new project to resurrect the Colonial Market House.
This week on the podcast, Architectural Historian Carl Lounsbury joins us to talk about the project and the history behind it. Market houses were a nexus of colonial society, linking classes, professions and races in one hungry crowd on market day.
