Lynnhaven House Museum

4409 Wishart Road, Virginia Beach, Virginia 23455 Price Range: $ Save

The Lynnhaven House is an example of early Virginia vernacular architecture. It reflects the social and economic status of Francis Thelaball, a middling plantation owner who built it for his family.

Architectural and design details including brick jack arches, a closed-spindle staircase with teardrop pendant, and ship’s lap floor construction reveal a builder concerned with quality as well as artistry. Today the Lynnhaven House is furnished as a historic house museum to interpret the period Francis Thelaball and his family lived there, from 1725 to 1727.
