10 bucks for me and 6 bucks for my daughter and we got an awkward private tour of the house. It was disappointing but we gave to money more as a donation than an entry. They need the visitors...but they need a little more personality to make me want to recommend it.

One of two pre-Revolutionary War houses in the country with all of its original wood paneling! We had a fine tour with a good docent who answered all of our questions. It contains fine paintings and beautiful furniture. It's well worth an hour's visit.

I have no problems finding this home. It is at the end of the street of the neighborhood. In front of the house there is a roundabout. There are many places for parking. Tours start at 10 a.m and they last 45 minutes. We started the tour on the outside of the home by the front door and then moved... More

I love touring historic houses around Virginia and it was a pleasant surprise to stumble upon this one. In addition to tours they also have a music series Jammin on the James in the summer that makes for a great way to spend the afternoon with a picnic.

The guide on this tour is extremely knowledgeable and funny providing anecdotes as well as a history of the home. Both the building and grounds are beautiful and you get to see every room. The antique road show recently filmed here and there are still a few items being showcased/highlighted from their stay.

We went right before closing time. We had a personal tour from a very knowledgeable and entertaining older gentleman. The home is beautiful and rich with history! Loved the room that George Washington had stayed in. Would definitely visit again!

We were so lucky to have Thomas L. Mitchell for our Docent while we toured Wilton. He gave us a leisurely tour filled with imagine that made you think you were walking back in time. Such a beautiful house to spend the afternoon. Thank you Thomas!

This "high Georgian" Manor House, built in the 1750's, is one of only two fully paneled interior colonial homes in the United States (the other is Drayton Hall, just outside Charleston, S.C.). Originally built 15 miles east of Richmond, it was moved piece by piece to its present location in the city's west end in 1933 because the property on... More
