AAA Editor Notes
The Historic Trades Sites are throughout the Colonial Williamsburg Historic Area, off I-64 exit 238. Collectively, the practiced trades replicate an 18th-century production system. More than 70 artisans—including brickmakers, coopers, milliners and silversmiths—offer insights into early American society and technology. The trades sites produce the materials used in the historic area's reconstructions. Guests can work in the brickyard and learn about the skills and training needed to become a master tradesman.
