Colonial Williamsburg Unveils $600M Campaign

Posted:

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation says it is embarking on a $600 million fundraising campaign.

The foundation says it launched the private phase of the campaign in 2009, and that it has already raised more than $300 million toward its goal.

The foundation runs the world's largest living history museum in Williamsburg and is launching the public phase of its campaign on Saturday.

Campaign will go toward a variety of projects, including expanding Colonial Williamsburg's art museums. Other money will go toward preserving historic area buildings and gardens, as well as funding for historical research, museum exhibitions and new Revolutionary City programming.

The Foundation oversees the largest colonial-period archaeological collection in the United States, and funding would also go toward an archaeological collections building to provide support for archaeologists.
