Description

Reopened in May 2011 after extensive restoration, the Adam Thoroughgood House has long been the subject of study and debate.

Visit the Thoroughgood House to hear the great success story of Adam Thorowgood, one of Virginia’s first colonists. Learn about the house Argall and Susannah Thorowgood built and what makes it so extraordinary. See the special touches added by John Thorowgood and tour the passage and parlor, furnished as they might have been when John lived there. Finally, follow the house in pictures up to the present and find out what—and how—we are continuing to learn about this historic treasure.

The Adam Thoroughgood House was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960. In 2003 it was acquired by the City of Virginia Beach. It is a Save America’s Treasures site.
