Dover Hall is a 32,000 square-foot English Tudor manse located on 55 acres in Goochland. With many architectural influences, including North Carolina’s Biltmore and the University of Richmond, Dover Hall is a rare and impressive structure. Virginia Living notes that “while the exterior of Dover Hall is impressive, the interior of the house is an astounding showcase for period art and antiques.”
Founded in 1968, the Goochland Historical Society is a non-profit, member driven organization created and operated for the presentation, preservation and protection of Goochland County heritage and tradition.
