Our HOA represents a great neighborhood in a beautiful and historic location.

map Yorkshire is a beautiful residential neighborhood of 45 single-family homes located in the southeastern part of the Commonwealth of Virginia, between the James and York Rivers on the Virginia Peninsula. We are in the City of Williamsburg and within walking distance of Colonial Williamsburg and the campus of College of William and Mary. Building lots in our neighborhood range from one-half to three-quarter acres and homes in the community have at least 2,200 square feet of floor space. Houses are primarily brick colonial-style and all our utilities are underground. Our community has events throughout the year including an annual membership meeting in January, periodic meetings of an elected Board of Directors, spring and fall cleanup days to maintain our common areas, community garage sales, an annual picnic in the fall, preparation and display of luminaires on Christmas Eve, and other events.

United States history and democracy began and was nurtured at Williamsburg.

We live in one of the most diverse and significant historical areas in the United States. This was the home of Native Americans who established a sophisticated social organization and culture over thousands of years. The first permanent English speaking settlement in what is now the United States of America was established in 1607 at Jamestown, just 6 miles south of the Yorkshire neighborhood. In 1698, the colonial capital moved from Jamestown to Williamsburg, just a mile to the east of Yorkshire, to be on high ground between the James and York Rivers. During the 18th century Williamsburg, including the College of William and Mary, became the center of intellectual political debate leading to the Declaration of Independence and to the enunciation of the principles of American independence and democracy. Just 16 miles east of Yorkshire the American Revolution ended and our country was born with the surrender of British forces at Yorktown. During the Civil War, General McClellan's peninsula campaign fought many battles near this area, eventually leading to the final major engagement of the war in Petersburg, just 50 miles west of Yorkshire. In 1926, the Reverend Dr. W.A.R. Goodwin, rector of Bruton Parish Church, shared his dream of preserving Williamsburg's historic buildings with philanthropist John D. Rockefeller Jr., and the restoration began. The work progressed and expanded to include a major portion of the colonial town, encompassing approximately 85 percent of the 18th-century capital's original area.

Our town is a vibrant, inspiring, and entertaining tourist destination.

The Historic Triangle of Virginia, which also includes Jamestown and Yorktown, is a very popular tourist destination, with Williamsburg located in the center. The three locations are linked by the Colonial Parkway, a 23 mile National Park Service Scenic Byway. The toll-free Jamestown Ferry is located at the southern end of the Colonial Parkway. Virginia Route 5, another scenic historic byway, links Williamsburg and Richmond and adjoins several important ante-bellum plantations. Other attractions in Williamsburg include the Busch Gardens theme park and a water park. There are many other attractions in neighboring Norfolk, Hampton Roads, and Richmond.
