Content Description

Collection of ticket stubs, postcards, and ephemera, related to a honeymoon visit to Williamsburg and surrounding areas from April 28- May 1 of 1959. Ephemera includes restaurant menus and visitor brochures to Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown Festival Park, and the Yorktown Battlefield. Restaurant menus are from Chowning's Tavern, The Williamsburg Inn, The King's Arms Tavern, and Christiana Campbell's Tavern in Williamsburg as well as paper place mats from the Ivy House and Florentine Restaurant in Williamsburg and Tappahannock, VA, respectively. A map on the Florentine Restaurant mat shows the major routes between Washington, D.C, Richmond, Tappahannock, and Williamsburg. Without Interstate 95 or 64, the Florentine Restaurant was a mid way location for all Southern routes heading to the Williamsburg area.
