Lynnhaven House

Lynnhaven House

The 19th century burial ground of the Boush family stands watch to the south of the house that family also once owned. Typical of early colonial planters' homes, the Lynnhaven House features a hall-parlor plan with molded ceiling joists and a closed string Jacobean-type stair. Costumed docents conduct tours of the house and grounds as visitors arrive. The grounds also contain gardens and a small Revolutionary War graveyard. Furnishings inside the home reflect the early eighteenth century.
