Originally built in 1755, the Avoca home suffered two devastating fires and three reconstructions.
Now the current one hundred year old home is on the National Register of Historic Places, is a Virginia Historic Landmark and serves as a museum in Alta Vista.
Today we take you on a tour through the Avoca home... passed down through many generations of the Lynch family.

((THIS HOUSE SITE WAS SETTLED IN 1755 BY COLONEL CHARLES LYNCH. HE GAINED FAME LATER ON IN HISTORY THROUGH THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR, HE WAS A SOLDIER AND A STATESMAN DURING THE WAR.
[IN Q=This house site]
[RUNS= 10]
[OUT Q=during the war.]


Avoca was a five thousand acre plantation based on tobacco crops... in 1879 the home burned down and then again in 1900.
The current house you see here was built in 1901 by Lynch family descendants... Mary and Thomas Fauntleroy... in the Victorian Queen Anne style.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT 4:03:52-4:04:16]

THIS SITE IS A SIGNIFICANT HISTORIC SITE PRIMARILY BECAUSE OF THE CONNECTION WITH COLONEL LYNCH. HE WAS AN ORIGINAL SENATOR FOR THE STATE OF VIRGINIA, A REVOLUTIONARY WAR SOLDIER AND HERO, ALL OF THOSE THINGS ARE VERY IMPORTANT, AND ALSO BECAUSE IT WAS AN OPERATING, LARGE, VERY PROSPEROUS PLANTATION FROM THE 1700'S ALL THE WAY TO THE CIVIL WAR.
[IN Q=This site is]
[RUNS= 24]
[OUT Q=the civil War.]


The extravagant home shows the significant wealth of the Fauntleroy family for the time period. The owners even went so far as to build a balistrade on the staircase just so their dog would have a special sleeping spot! Back in the 1900's, more than 60 servants worked on the plantation and in the eight bedroom home.
(///// SOT /////)

ONE REALLY INTERESTING PIECE IS A SMALL BLUE CHAIR THAT WE'VE HAD HERE, IT'S A PRE-CIVIL WAR PIECE, ACTUALLY AND IT HAS A VERY UNUSUAL DESIGN. A LARGE PART OF THE BACK HAS BEEN CUT OUT AND THE PURPOSE FOR THAT IS SO MILITARY OFFICERS COULD SIT IN IT WITHOUT HAVING TO TAKE THEIR SWORDS OFF, THEY COULD JUST LAY THE SWORD THROUGH THE BACK OF THE CHAIR.
[IN Q=One really interesting]
[RUNS= 19]
[OUT Q=back of the chair.]


In the 1990's, Avoca underwent renovations due to its dilapidated condition including new carpeting, wallpaper and window dressings... but all design elements had to be historically accurate and true to the Victorian period. However some things never changed.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT 4:00:23-35]

THERE'S AN UPSTAIRS BATHROOM WHICH IS ORIGINAL TO THE HOUSE AND ALL THE FIXTURES IN THAT BATHROOM ARE ALSO ORIGINAL FROM 1901, THAT INCLUDES EVEN THE SPACE HEATER IN THE CORNER, THE CLAW-FOOTED BATH TUB.
[IN Q=There's an upstairs]
[RUNS= 12]

The bed in the master bedroom is also nearly a century old... and all the rooms in the home reflect the architecture of the day.

AS WE WERE SITTING IN THE PARLOR I NOTICED YOU HAVE THESE VERY LARGE DOORS HERE. YES, THESE WERE USUALLY KEPT SHUT BY THE FAMILY, THEY DIVIDED THE PARLOR AND THE LIBRARY. THEY WOULD DO THEIR ENTERTAINING IN THE PARLOR AND THEY WOULD KEEP THESE SHUT SO THAT VISITORS WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO ENTER INTO THE REST OF THE HOME.

And the museum even has an exhibit room dedicated to Civil War history which contains extensive war memorabilia including an authentic Confederate Flag.
