Formerly an English country manor home relocated to Richmond in 1925, Virginia House is owned and operated by the Virginia Historical Society. Virginia House was the home of Alexander and Virginia Weddell. Mrs. Weddell's talents as an interior designer are evident in rooms decorated with English and Spanish antiques, silk draperies, Oriental carpets, and fine silver and china. The eight acres of gardens and grounds of Virginia House provide a rich tapestry of texture and color throughout the year. When the house was completed in 1929, the Weddells deeded it to the Virginia Historical Society, retaining lifetime tenancy for themselves.
