Francis Land House (Historic Site)


The historic Francis Land House was once surrounded by hundreds of acres of farmland. It served as the home of Francis Land VI, a wealthy plantation owner from Princess Anne County, Virginia. The house is furnished with a mix of period antiques and reproductions to interpret the period that Francis Land VI and his wives and daughters were in residence, circa 1805-1819. . Tour guides also discuss the colorful history of the house in the 20th century, when it functioned as the Rose Hall Dress Shop. In 1986, it was purchased and opened as a historic museum by the City of Virginia Beach.
