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 a prominent family in 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. Tours of the Francis Land House consider plantation life; the roles of the household members, both free and enslaved; Federal style; and ways that the formation of the new nation affected private lives. Tour guides also discuss the colorful history of the house in the 20th century, when it functioned as the Rose Hall Dress Shop. The City of Virginia Beach purchased the Francis Land House in 1975 and opened it as a historic house museum in 1986.Tours are given hourly on the half hour.Monday – Wednesday – ClosedThursday – Saturday – 10 am to 4pmSunday – 12 pm to 4 pm
