Agecroft Hall, the house was also built of ancient materials imported from an old house in England as part of Thomas William's original plan to build an authentic Tudor Village in Richmond.
Virginia House was built by Alexander and Virginia (hence the name) Weddells but began life as a priory in 1109 built by Earl Warwick which was later remodeled in the 17th century.
Much like their neighbor, Agecroft Hall, the house was purchased at a demolition sale.
While the materials began to arrive in 1926 via ship they were so waterlogged that they had to sit to dry out for 6 months before building could procede. The Weddells finally moved into their new old house in 1929.
The structure of the gardens shows more clearly in their dormant period.
Don't forget to book a tour before your visit to Richmond. I'll just have to go back to Richmond to tour Virginia House!
