In part two of our tour of Colonial Williamsburg, we step back in time once again to get a closer look at the picturesque town and the fascinating residents who lived and worked here. On this tour we leave the elegant mansions behind and visit with the merchants, the tradesmen, and the artisans who created the everyday fabric of this historic community. We're starting at one of the earliest churches in Virginia, Bruton Parish Church. Along the way we'll see the first public mental institution established in the country, we'll stop by one of Virginia's early arsenals, and we'll pass properties once owned by Martha Washington's relatives. Fittingly, we finish at the first building in America to be called the Capitol - the place that saw the beginnings of American independence.
