A longtime favorite of Williamsburg, Seasons Trace is a popular planned community in the area. Combining townhomes, cluster homes, and detached homes there is literally a home for every buyers needs or wants.Local developer Hertzler Brothers developed Seasons Trace and built the townhomes plus many of the single family homes in the subdivision.John Asa, Joe, and David Hertzler incorporated Hertzler Brothers in 1959. They brought to the company their own strengths. John Asa had worked for builder and developer, L. B. Weber, David Hertzler had worked on construction crews and, at 16 years old, had been made a supervisor. They began building homes in Shore Park in Newport News, then they started building custom homes. In its 50+ years in business Hertzler Brothers has built over 2,000 properties including homes, offices, and public buildings . They were at the forefront of “Green Building” beginning construction of solar and passive solar homes in the 1970s in Seasons Trace and Kristiansand.
A total of 471 homes lie within the development. 285 are detached homes and 185 are attached town homes. Homes were built starting in 1979 and continued until the 2000’s

From the Developer”s son.It is great to see that 40 years after Hertzler Brother Builders constructed the first townhouse, Seasons Trace is still a favorite neighborhood in Williamsburg. I remember when it was considered a rural area. The development was designed so no houses faced the main road into Seasons Trace, and keeping as many trees as possible was a high priority. Nice job Hertzler Brother Builders!David Hertzler, IIT
