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 with architectural historian Chris Novelli that highlights the history and architecture of one of Richmond’s most elegant neighborhoods.
In the event of inclement weather, the tour will be cancelled.
Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and shoes.
