Colonial Williamsburg Announces 2004 Good Neighbor Program

Colonial Williamsburg today announced the 2004 Good Neighbor program, its popular community outreach program that provides admission and special benefits to Williamsburg area residents. As previously indicated by Colonial Williamsburg Foundation officials, next year’s Good Neighbor program features several adjustments and enhancements intended to strengthen the overall program and support the educational mission of the Foundation.

As in previous years, Good Neighbor 2004 program eligibility includes:

  • residents of Williamsburg, James City County and the Bruton District of York County,
  • employees of those local government jurisdictions,
  • students of the College of William and Mary, and
  • William and Mary faculty, staff and their immediate families.

    Beginning Jan. 1, 2004, a per person membership fee of $10 will apply to new registrations and annual renewals for adults. The fee will be waived for students at the College of William and Mary, K-12 students who reside in Williamsburg, James City County or the Bruton District of York County, or children ages five and under. Student status can be verified through a current student ID card, a class assignment letter, student progress report card, a letter of curriculum approval for home-schooled students or other similar documentation.

    Other changes include a reduction in the discount applicable to purchases of general admission tickets. The current 40 percent discount will change to 25 percent. However, the annual limit on purchases of general admission tickets, currently set at 10, will increase to 20.

    Good Neighbor cardholders will continue to enjoy admission to all Colonial Williamsburg exhibition sites and museums, complimentary use of the Colonial Williamsburg bus service, seasonal shopping and dining opportunities and a 25 percent discount on purchases of tickets to evening programs (some programs may not be available at discount due to seasonal demand).

    Established in 1926, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is the not-for-profit educational institution that operates the restored 18th-century capital of Virginia. For more information or reservations, call toll-free (800) HISTORY or visit Colonial Williamsburg’s Web site at
