Near the end of the 19th century during the Industrial Revolution, it fell into disrepair. Due to coal mining activity nearby and railroad tracks running through... More

This is a real find overlooking the James River in the WIndsor Farms district of Richmond. A 16th century English manor house transported brick by brick to Richmond. I love it here and learned even more about it on the tour. A Richmond must-do!

No problems finding the house. Plenty of parking spaces. Arrived at the office and bought our tickets $8.00 pp. The bathrooms and water fountain are locate in the office. Our tour started at 11:30, we had 20 minutes until that time. Staff showed us the exhibition room, there is a replica of this home as well as other information about... More

This is another hidden Richmond gem. It's a bit off the tourist track, in a posh neighborhood, but the walk there is rewarding. The Agecroft hall itself is a sight to behold, with its majestic appearance and we'll done gardens. The mansion tour was the highlight of the visit--our guide Stephen had excellent sense of humor and was very knowledgeable.... More

It's a little hard to find but worth the trip. A castle like edifice with furnishings from 200 years ago, during the spring and summer months the gardens are in bloom.

This building was dismantled in England, (with the pieces numbered) and reassembled on a lovely site overlooking the James River. The house is very interesting alone, but the grounds are also beautiful. A fascinating glimpse into the past.

A 17th century home that was bought in England, then brought over and reconstructed here, impressive.

Wow, where do I start? This place is so unique and situated in one of Richmond's finest neighbourhoods, it's one of the most beautiful houses I've ever been in - but it also has a history! Our guide was so knowledgeable and passionate about medieval history, it was wonderful. He was engaging and was able to give me and my... More

The home was dismantled and transported to the US from England and reassembled in Richmond above the James River. It is an interesting mid evil home and also home to the Richmond Shakespeare Theatre in the Summer.
