Williamsburg, Va Trip Architectural Details

The architectural details in Williamsburg are truly special. The brick walls have moss growing over the top softening their surface and providing color. The variety of fence styles and types are diverse and varied. I have to imagine there is significance to the different styles, but I did not find any documentation of such.

There are many styles of gates and passages. The discovery that is allowed through these borders gives the visitors more depth to the experience. 


There is a variety of signs marking the stores, taverns, and shops. These signs reinforce the architecture.


Even the hinges on the shutters have a variety of styles and types leaving the visitor opportunity to think about form and function.

The door locks range from sliding locks, chains, to padlocks. These locks add texture and detail that enhance the architectural story.
