The Thoroughgood House is currently closed for restoration work on the historic house and construction of a new education center. The Thoroughgood House will reopen February 22, 2018.
For many years it was believed the house was built by Adam Thorowgood himself. Today, architectural historians agree the house was built circa 1719 by Adam’s great-grandson, Argall.
Argall Thorowgood died in the midst of construction and his wife Susannah completed the work. Argall and Susannah’s son John later added the elements for which the house is known: its extensive wainscoting and paneling, as well as its dramatic turned staircase.
Visit the Thoroughgood House to hear the great success story of Adam Thorowgood, one of Virginia’s first colonists. Learn about the house Argall and Susannah Thorowgood built and what makes it so extraordinary. See the special touches added by John Thorowgood and tour the passage and parlor, furnished as they might have been when John lived there.
The Thoroughgood House was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960. In 2003 it was acquired by the City of Virginia Beach. It is a Save America's Treasures site.
