Agecroft Hall [VA]

Agecroft Hall is a Tudor–style mansion built in Lancashire, England in the late 15th century. The mansion was relocated to Virginia circa 1925. The structure is furnished with authentic artifacts dating from 1485 to 1660, including a rare 17th–century painted wood bedstead. The site also includes a garden based on period (late Tudor and Stuart) English gardens.

The hall offers period rooms and several educational programs designed to meet state education standards.
