Visit the ancestral "castles" that noted and famous Virginians called home. Step beyond the façades and walk through some of the most wonderful houses and gardens in America. Tour the homes of former U.S. Presidents, and the wartime residence of the President of the Confederate States. Stroll through stunning gardens. Witness the splendor and opulence of gilded age mansions built by financial and industrial barons. Explore an ancient British manor home that was taken apart, brought to Virginia, rebuilt and preserved with the utmost care. These are the "Crown Jewels" of architectural Virginia and many have been featured on A&E's America's Castles.
Note: Virginia's long history has seen the evolution of architectural gems. There are many historic homes throughout the state open for touring from the early rustic Jamestown Settlement to a modern Frank Lloyd Wright home. Contact us to inquire about more Virginia Castles.
