The Pineapple Story

imageDid y’all know the story of the Williamsburg Pineapple?

In colonial times, a sea-captain discovered the pineapple on one of his exotic travels. He brought the pineapple home as a delicacy to be shared with his family and friends. He continued to bring home pineapples he would collect on his exotic travels and attach a pineapple to his front gate post when he returned home to let his friends and family members know that they were always welcomed to stop at his home to enjoy his family hospitality.

So began a legendary tradition that continues to this day. So the next time you see a pineapple flag outside my home, you are welcomed to stop in and enjoy some of my family’s hospitality.
