Thoroughgood House Reviews & Ratings
Visiting VA Beach on vacation and wanted to check out the local history and this place is a gem! They offer an hour tour, with a 7 minute video introduction and a room of artifacts either before or after the guided tour. Our tour guide, Elizabeth, is a lovely woman who has a great sense of humor and a wealth of information- you can tell she loves history and she is great at answering the questions you're thinking in your head! The staff is friendly, the tours are well worth the 5-7 dollar fee, and I definitely recommend this one (and I'm sure the other tours related to older homes, grouped with this one on the website, are worth it as well)!! Also you can explore the grounds when the tour is done :)
Our group attended the ghost tour, an interesting perspective on possible hauntings at the house. Unfortunately, it wasn't very scary! Adding a few dark pics for perspective.
Did the Haunted Encounter walk thru. We had the perfect weather for it and it was a great experience.
Love it! Beautiful place to visit . Though they dont tell you all the history, great place to research out after. :-)
i grew up in this Neighborhood in the 60's. As kids we rode our bikes all around this brick home during the daytime hours only because We were told that sounds were heard coming from this house at night. Im sure that mystery has long since been resolved and im grateful that they are trying to preserve it and its history.
