Wilton House Tour Ticket
On Saturday, May 9 from 10 AM to 2PM, Wilton opens its doors for the public to view this beautiful historic property. One of the best preserved 18th century plantation houses in Virginia, Wilton was completed in 1763 by William Churchill, the third generation of his family to occupy high positions in colonial and county government. After intensive preservation and modernization work, Wilton remains very much the same plantation house that was built 250 years ago: a handsomely furnished, T-shaped, 1 ½ story, gambrel-roofed, brick structure of simple but elegant Georgian design. Its 4,000 square feet of interior space are distributed over eight rooms with eight fireplaces served by three impressive white-capped chimneys.
