Richmond - Kent-Valentine House

Friday April 27, 2018

10 a.m. to noon

Kent-Valentine House, 12 East Franklin St.

One of the most architecturally significant and visually prominent antebellum mansions in downtown Richmond, the Kent-Valentine House was designed in 1845 by Isaiah Rogers, a noted New England architect, for Mr. and Mrs. Horace Kent. The house is the only remaining residential structure known to have been designed by this leader of the Greek Revival movement. Modified and enlarged by Mr. and Mrs. Granville Gray Valentine in 1904, this stately mansion occupies a quarter-block of historic Franklin Street. The building has been preserved and the grounds landscaped by the Garden Club of Virginia. Headquarters of the Garden Club of Virginia, it is open to the public during Historic Garden Week only.
There is no charge.
