Tuckahoe Plantation - Goochland County

Date
Friday May 3, 2019

Time
10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

A national historic landmark and the boyhood home of Thomas Jefferson, Tuckahoe is considered to be the most complete plantation layout in North America dating from the early 18th century and was one of the original properties featured on the first Historic Garden Week in 1929. Noteworthy are the rare outbuildings, including paired structures, which were the office and the schoolhouse where Jefferson attended classes. In 1935, the mansion was saved from being partially dismantled and moved for museum display. Grounds include a kitchen garden with perennials, vegetable plots, and a Memorial Garden designed by Charles F. Gillette. Tour the house and grounds and enjoy owner-presented talks on the architectural and landscape history of the property.
