Richmond: Old Locke Lane and Westmoreland Place

 

By 1776 Old Locke Lane was the route to the Westham Foundry. Approved by the Fifth Revolutionary Convention, the foundry produced civilian tools and ordinance for the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. During both wars the foundry was destroyed by enemy troops and never rebuilt a second time. Westmoreland Place was established after World War I when the demand for residential construction drove developers west. Both neighborhoods showcase some of the city’s most intriguingly designed houses. From classic 18th-century Georgian homes to Mediterranean-inspired villas, they blend landscapes on a grand scale with stately architecture.

The Cotterell house requires a separate ticket and it is a shuttle only tour departing from Agecroft Hall. Handicap access is not possible for this property.
