The highest point in Williamsburg is Minor Hill at 464 feet. A historic landmark, Minor Hill Park dates back to Civil War times when Union troops built an observation tower to gain intelligence about Confederate troop movements. Williamsburg’s small town charm is still evident in the Williamsburg Neighborhood Shopping Center which was built in the 1950s and includes a drugstore, bank, hair salon, and neighborhood favorites, such as the Backyard Barbeque.
Williamsburg is bounded by North Kensington Street, North Trinidad Street, North 27th Street and the Arlington County line.
