Sat in a classroom designed by Christopher Wren (St Paul's Cathedral, London), in the earliest building (I think) on the campus of the College of William and Mary in the heart of Williamsburg, Va -- fabulous lines and proportions, e.g., in the windows. It's a jewel.
Be sure to visit this building across the street from merchants square on to the campus of William and Mary.

I have lost count of the number of times we have stopped by to listen to the organ recitals the recitals are free the tour of the building is free the architecture is interesting parking is a challenge you can access the building from Merchant's Square (across the road) and enjoy the courtyard on you way inside
We experienced this on our college tour of William & Mary. Our college tour guide told us that the college still uses the Wren building for classes - that is so cool!!! Wonderful inside to feel like you are walking back in time. The outside of the building is so beautiful as well. What a beautiful campus to see.
