Situated on the James River, just seven miles west of Richmond, Tuckahoe Plantation still echoes a time long ago. This extraordinary colonial plantation is considered one of the most complete existing 18th century plantation layouts in North America.

Tuckahoe was originally settled by the Randolph family of colonial Virginia in the early eighteenth century and is the only early Randolph home still standing on its original site.

From 1745 until 1752, Tuckahoe was the boyhood home of America’s third president and founding father, Thomas Jefferson.

Tuckahoe was given the designation as a Registered National Historic Landmark in 1969 and has been open to the public for enjoyment and education ever since. Today, Tuckahoe is privately owned and cared for by the Thompson Family.

Tuckahoe is the backdrop of many special events and is open for house and grounds tours throughout the year. The exquisite gardens and grounds are open for self guided tours daily.

To tour the house one must make and appointment.
