Historic Homes as Event Venues

Paige Feingenbaum of Smart Meetings wrote an article, “If the Walls Could Talk in the Mid-Atlantic” about historic sites turned event venues. She highlights that “we can appreciate these grand homes for their grace and shining beauty, while acknowledging their shadowed past. The furniture and four walls—preserved, restored and maintained to appear frozen in time—may look the same when you step into this time warp of American history, but the demographics could not be more different from centuries ago. Visitors and groups of all races, ethnicities and classes are now equally welcome to freely roam in unity.” The Mid-Atlantic region, especially Virginia, plays a vital role in the hospitality industry, allowing guests to experience the region’s past. Historic homes, like Tuckahoe Plantation, warmly open their doors to guests for events, meetings, and/or tours, connecting Virginia’s past to the relevant present.

Alyssa & Alex

From the get-go, we knew Alyssa and Alex were a special couple…deeply in love, energetic, and ready for adventure! Their wedding day was an adventure for sure (understatement of the year), as the plantation and Richmond experienced it’s worst rainfall in 40+ years. However, the guests, family, and wedding party made the best of a rainy and muddy situation, and had a memorable celebration! Alicia White Photography wonderfully captured the warm spirit and love of Alyssa and Alex, and Tuckahoe wishes many happy and sunny days for Mr. and Mrs. Hall!

Paranormal Investigation

Did you know that the plantation is haunted? Many visitors and employees have experienced something unusual on the property. Recently in March, the grounds, North Cabin, and Main House were investigated by the Portsmouth Paranormal Society, the Full Moon Paranormal, and Coastal Virginia Paranormal. They kindly created this video of their results and findings! Enjoy the video here.
