Adam Thoroughgood House – Historic Museum Project
We are excited to announce that we will be creating and designing a floorcloth for the front entry of the Adam Thoroughgood House located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Adam Thoroughgood arrived in Virginia in 1621 as an indentured servant and in 1636 was granted a land parcel. It was thought the house dates circa 1680 and was probably built by one of his grandsons, although recent archaeology suggests it may have been built as late as 1720. The house is one of the oldest brick houses from early Colonial period and provides insight into the of the kind of lifestyle lived by the gentry in Princess Anne County.
The historical landmark sits on 4 1/2 acres and features a unique English architecture along with a herb garden, flowers gardens and overlooks the Lynnhaven River.
We will be working on the floorcovering over the next few weeks in order to be installed in the front entry way of the house for the museum’s yearly Spring opening in late April.
