About The Event
Richmond’s first comprehensively-planned community, Windsor Farms displays shaded, tree-lined streets and a harmonious blend of picturesque Tudor and Colonial style residences. Windsor Farms began taking shape during the mid-1920s under the vision of Agecroft’s owner T.C. Williams, Jr. Mr. Williams envisioned a planned community modeled after an English country village, which offered all of the amenities of modern city living. As the community developed, it became a showcase for both Tudor and Colonial style homes, featuring two imported English manor houses and grand Colonial Revival mansions by noted architect William Lawrence Bottomley. Join us for a tour which highlights the history and architecture of one of Richmond’s most elegant neighborhoods.
