Adam Thoroughgood is one of America's first great success stories. He came to Virginia as an indentured servant in 1621 and owned over 8,000 acres of land by the time of his death in 1640. Visitors will learn his story at the Adam Thoroughgood House which was likely built by his great grandson circa 1719. The tour of the house features a very nice collection of late 17th-century and early 18th-century English furniture. The grounds features a garden designed by Alden Hopkins in 1960. Rest Rooms. Museum Store. Available combination ticket with Francis Land and Lynnhaven Houses. Closed Monday. Please be advised that the Adam Thoroughgood House will be closed Fall 2009 for restoration work.
