...The motto of Colonial Williamsburg is "The future may learn from the past". The Historic Area is an interpretation of a Colonial American city, with exhibits including dozens of authentic or recreated colonial houses.

Interpreters work and dress as they did in the era, using colonial grammar and diction (although not colonial accents)."
