Photo about Agecroft Hall
Agecroft Hall was built in Lancashire, England in the late 15th century. For hundreds of years it was the home of first the Langley and then the Dauntesey families.
At the end of the 19th century however it had fallen into disrepair and was eventually put up for auction in 1925.
Hearing of this Thomas C. Williams from Richmond. Va. purchased the structure, had it dismantled, crated, shipped across the Atlantic and then reassembled in Richmond.
The home is now a museum and it and the gardens are open to the public.
