Agecroft Hall

Agecroft Hall

A "transplant" from Tudor England, this half-timbered manor house built in the 15th century was dismantled and brought to Virginia in 1926 where it was reconstructed near the James River. Inside visitors can see authentic furnishings dating from 1485 to 1660. Visitors can also enjoy scenic views throughout the 23 acres of lawns and gardens that overlook the river.
