Tuckahoe Plantation; What Can We Learn

August 4, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Middlesex County Museum & Historical Society is sponsoring speaker Addison Baker Thompson, Resident Manager of Tuckahoe Plantation (1720), a home and working farm for nearly 300 years. Boyhood home of Thomas Jefferson the plantation is considered by architectural historians to have the most complete eighteenth century plantation layout in North America. The original schoolhouse where Thomas Jefferson began his education and the office still stand.
Come and learn about the features that make Tuckahoe Plantation an outstanding example of construction that has stood the test of time. Learn about the lives of those who lived there including John Marshall’s grandmother (who was born and got into trouble there.) Learn about the influences of the house on Thomas Jefferson as many of us experience the influences of our homes on us. In addition, Tuckahoe has made a large contribution to the legal landscape of preservation law and finally its conservation and protection through conservation and historic preservation easements.

Mr. Thompson graduated from Princeton University, cum laude in history AB in 1970 and he earned his law degree from the University of Virginia in 1973.  While serving as the resident manager of Tuckahoe Plantation from 1979 to present, Mr. Thompson has practiced law, served in the Naval Reserve, been a member of numerous boards including Preservation Virginia and he is an emeritus member of the Capital Region Land Conservancy.

As Middlesex celebrates over 350 years of its history that is reflected in preserved homes such as Leafwood (1791) in Saluda, various county properties in conservation easements and lone structures standing the ravages of time, we invite you to attend this presentation. Tickets are $35 that includes appetizers, wine and beer. You may purchase tickets by visiting our web site MiddlesexMuseum.com, visiting the museum Thursday through Saturday 10 am to 3 pm. You may also send a check to Middlesex Museum P.O. Box 121, Saluda 23149 and make the check out to Middlesex Museum.
