Williamsburg Landing has a rich history that goes back to the 1970s, when a group of visionary local residents recognized the need for a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in Williamsburg, Virginia.

The facility provides an environment of exceptional services and amenities that promotes active lifestyles and personal freedom. Since its inception, Williamsburg Landing has continued the vision of its founders, ever vigilant in identifying emerging needs and responding accordingly.
