Place:
Virginia House (Richmond, Virginia)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Richmond County -- Richmond
Scope and Contents:
Folders include work sheets, brochures, and copies of articles.
General:
The house, dating to 1125, was relocated from Warwickshire, England to Richmond, Virginia between 1925 and 1929. Called the Priory of St. Sepulchre, it served as a monastery for four hundred years. During the 1540s, the house was reconstructed as a manor house. Once moved to Richmond, Gillette designed the landscape with "pleasances," a series of small terraced gardens, pools, and paths. The pleasances include a water garden, perennial bed, azalea garden, tea garden, wildflower meadow, woodland walk, bog garden, pergola, and Sulgrave Garden.
Persons associated with the property include: Alexander Wilbourne and Virginia Chase Weddell (former owners, 1925-1928); Virginia Historical Society (owners, 1929-present); Charles Gillette (landscape designer, 1928-1940); and Henry Grant Morse (architect, 1925).
