Short answer is yes, but.....
But of late they (The Foundation) have spent considerably more on new golf courses
and hotels than they have on upkeep for the historic area, research, etc.. There
are frequent complaints by employees that there is an obvious bias and that the
Foundation has lost sight of why people come to conferences, etc. at Colonial
Williamsburg. While there are certainly those who come solely to play on the
world class golf courses, it is rather more likely that most visitors come
primarily to visit the historic area.
