A city in the state of Virginia, founded in the 1600s during colonial days.
- In 1760, MACUSA relocated from the Appalachian Mountains to Williamsburg, which was the home of President Thornton Harkaway. Unfortunately he raised a pack of very overprotective Crups which "savaged" some local No-Majs, leading to Harkaway's resignation. After that, MACUSA moved to Baltimore. (Pm).
- Williamsburg founded the first psychiatric hospital in the United States, which might have something to do with No-Maj sightings of Harkaway's vicious Crups (Pm).
Williamsburg was an important city in Colonial Days:
Williamsburg was founded in 1632 as Middle Plantation, a fortified settlement on high ground between the James and York rivers. The city served as the capital of the Colony of Virginia from 1699 to 1780 and was the center of political events in Virginia leading to the American Revolution. The College of William & Mary, established in 1693, is the second-oldest institution of higher education in the United States and the only one of the nine colonial colleges located in the South; its alumni include three U.S. presidents as well as many other important figures in the nation's early history.
