Mission Statement

To increase public understanding of life in Virginia since the 18th century, the paradox of hardship amid elegance, and how the past continues to shape life in America today.

Description

Wilton is Richmond's premier 18th century decorative arts house museum. Built in 1753 by William Randolph III, the house was at the heart of a 2,000-acre tobacco plantation, originally located six miles east of downtown Richmond. Thanks to the support of the Colonial Dames of America in the Commonwealth of Virginia, this Georgian manor house was moved to its current location in 1934 when it was threatened with demolition.
