The historic site was the seat of Virginia's colonial government for 75 years. Here in May, 1765, Patrick Henry denounced the Stamp Act and on May 15, 1776, a Virginia Convention unanimously proposed that the Continental Congress "declare the United Colonies free and independent states." On June 12, 1776, a Virginia Convention approved George Mason's Declaration of Rights and on June 29 adopted the first constitution for the new Commonwealth of Virginia.
