In 1925, wealthy American families were building huge country estates. Thomas C. Williams, Jr. bought Agecroft Hall, dismantled it, and shipped it across the ocean to Richmond. Architect, Henry G. Morse, oversaw the dismantling process and piece-by-piece delivery to the Windsor Farms site overlooking the James River where it has stood since 1926-27. He also supervised the reconstruction, updating the mansion with modern conveniences.
The owner died in 1929, not long after the construction was completed. He bequeathed Agecroft Hall for use as a museum. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmark Register in 1978.
Spring is the ideal time to visit the Agecroft Hall & Gardens. During operating hours, the museum provides guided one-hour tours. Guides will walk you through the museum and you can wander the grounds at will.
Landscape Architect, Charles Gilette designed the grounds during the original reconstruction. It's an opulent display of trees, greenery, and breathtaking gardens: Sunken Garden, Elizabeth Knot Garden, Crape Myrtle Walk, and Spring Sunken Garden.
