Wilton House Museum

Wilton House Museum

Visitors can experience 18th century life at Wilton, Richmond's own Georgian plantation manor house. Moved and restored by The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Wilton now is home to a rich collection of 18th and early 19th century furnishings, portraits, silver, ceramics, and textiles. Famous visitors to the house included George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and the Marquis de Lafayette.
