Gingerbread men available first-come, first-served while supplies last.

Owned and operated by the Virginia Historical Society, Virginia House is located at 4301 Sulgrave Road in Windsor Farms, less than five miles from the Virginia Museum of History & Culture. Formerly an English country manor house relocated to Richmond in 1925, Virginia House was the home of Ambassador Alexander Weddell and his wife, Virginia, from 1928-1948.
