About The Event
Love to visit England, but hate the jet lag? Then let Executive Director, Anne Kenny-Urban, lead you through a tour of “England in America”. From the comfort of your seat, travel from Connecticut to Nevada in search of English architectural treasures, like Agecroft Hall, that have made the journey from the Old World to the New. Hear the incredible stories of why and how the structures were transported to America and what purpose they serve now.
Art Historian Anne Kenny-Urban is the Executive Director of Agecroft Hall & Gardens, a house museum that showcases daily life in a Tudor manor house that was built in England in the 16th century and moved to Virginia in 1925. Anne earned her BA at Princeton University, her MA in art history at the University of Chicago, and her MBA at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University. Prior to her move to Agecroft, she worked for VMFA for nearly a decade.
