Colonial Williamsburg Foundation
- Existence: 1926 (date of establishment)
The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation was created in 1926 by William Archer Rutherford Goodwin and John D. Rockefeller Jr. The foundation's main goal is to preserve the history of 18th-century Williamsburg. It is a non-profit organization that continues to restore historic buildings, maintain a museum, and provide educational activities for visitors.
In 1962, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation's archaeologist, Ivor Noël Hume, joined with staff of the Smithsonian Institution and The Corning Museum of Glass, to participate in the excavation of the New Bremen Glass Manufactory, also known as the Amelung Glass Manufactory, near present-day Frederick, Maryland.
