  • In September, the Williamsburg Bray School, an original 18th-century building, will open as a public site for the very first time. 

  • Colonial Williamsburg will also launch a new 100th anniversary walking tour, Power of Place, that gives an insider look at the 1930s restoration.


  • In the spring, Colonial Williamsburg will celebrate the opening of the Campbell Archaeology Center. 

  • November 7 marks the 250th anniversary of Lord Dunmore's Proclamation, which played a significant role in the lead-up to the American Revolution. New programming will center around the looming revolution in 1775 and bring to life the tension and anticipation of that pivotal time in history.

James Monroe’s Highland

James Monroe's Highland

Highland was a working plantation in early America, and home to scores of enslaved men, women, and children. From 1799 to 1826, it was the sporadic residence of fifth president James Monroe.

For years, public understanding of the site relied on incomplete evidence—so much so that a good deal of Highland’s story remained hidden! Now historians and archaeologists are peeling back the layers of mystery and misunderstanding to uncover more of Highland’s past.

George Washington’s Mount Vernon

George Washington's Mount Vernon

The estate of our first president, George Washington, is open daily and is just outside of Washington, D.C.


In 2026, visitors to George Washington’s Mount Vernon will see a transformation inside the first president’s home. Most of the Mansion’s rooms will have been updated with striking new wallpaper and paint colors to reflect recent research, resulting in a home more closely resembling its appearance in 1799, the last year of George Washington’s life.

The estate will also unveil a new George Washington exhibition in the space previously known as the Education Center. This new experience provides improved access to some of the most important objects in Mount Vernon’s collection, while telling the story of George Washington, his family, and of the enslaved community who lived and worked at Mount Vernon.

The Revolutionary War 4D Theater, where cannons fire and snow falls every day, and the Be Washington leadership experience will also reopen in 2026.
