Governor's Palace at Williamsburg puts on new face
The makeover is tied to the upcoming "Revolutionary City" program.
Beginning March 20, the palace and other historic area sites, as well as Colonial Williamsburg's costumed interpreters, will bring to life the period from 1774 to 1781.
At the palace, rooms are being changed to look as they did during the term of Virginia's last royal governor, Lord Dunmore, who lived there with his wife and children until 1775.
