Adam Thoroughgood House
Nestled near the bank of the Lynnhaven River, the Thoroughgood House was built circa 1680 and is one of the oldest brick homes in America. Its spectacular collection of late 17th- and early 18th-century English furniture and newly-restored gardens offer visitors a view of the lifestyle of a wealthy Virginia colonist. Costumed historical interpreters conduct guided tours of the structure and the surrounding grounds.
