What would it be like to jerk the phone out of the wall, lock all electronics away and light candles for a relaxing read through Charles Dickens. A great view into life in Virginia in the past.

Very nice place to visit if one is looking for small, historic homes. Similar in shape to the nearby Thoroughgood house but at this site both floors are included on the tour. Beautiful interior! No gardens however.
