One of the 88 original buildings, the Greenhow Brick Office stands just off Market Square. It was known by legend as the “Debtor’s Prison” although it does not appear to have been built for that purpose. Evidence shows that the building was probably designed as a dwelling or a shop.
The Greenhow Brick Office is used today as offices for Colonial Williamsburg staff.
