Of the existing historic residential structures in Virginia Beach, and there fortunately are many, this is the most perhaps the most beautiful in its simplicity. The interior is modest, but the interpretation of life here is excellent. The exterior steps are engineered without nails. It’s practical and handsome. The movie is worth seeing and the exhibits are well-presented and add much to your experience of the home. The gardens are formal and make little use of the water. It’s still appealing to just stroll and seek out a glimpse of the waterway, well, and huge trees.

Though our docent was very knowledgeable, this house was pretty devoid of furniture, and it was hard to imagine life as it was when it was used by the many occupants. What was there was interesting.

If you want to learn about early Tidewater society, you want to visit the Thoroughgood House. The Thoroughgood family were central to the settlement and economy of what would become Virginia Beach. The house itself dates from the early 18th Century, and the tour gives a good impression of how folks of all levels of society would have lived, from slaves to colonial grandees. There is also a good museum in the visitor center about the history of the area through the American Revolution. The Thoroughgood House is a hidden gem in Hampton Roads and a credit to the Virginia Beach municipal museum system.

We watched a short video and then had a private tour guided by a very nice lady who knows every detail about the property. I found it most interesting and well worth a visit.
