There are such wooden structures, as on my picture, decorated with British flags put around colonial Williamsburg. Unfortunately there is no information what is that at place.

It is military post of British colonial army which resided in Williamsburg until 1775 when it was replaced by first Williamsburg militia, then regular U.S. army. British Royal troops put up such posts along main routes during the Revolutionary War (1775 - 1783).
