1. The Raleigh Tavern Marker
Inscription. During Public Times Virginia leaders often met at the Raleigh, Williamsburg's most popular inn. Here in 1769 a group of burgesses adopted the proposal of George Mason for a boycott of British goods. Five years later Burgesses again met in the Apollo Room to issue the call for the first Continental Congress. This reconstructed building is appointed with English and American furnishings in accordance with inventories of early innkeepers.
