number of adaptations 5 This was the Governor s Palace At some point in the 16805 people in VA gave up on the idea ofJamestown as the capitol They moved inland to Williamsburg They needed a palace for the colonial gov He lived here with his court There was a lot of importation amp cordial ceremony amp a ballroom which was behind this palace which is a very big version of the president s house just
