Quoit Club | Sabot at Stony PointThursday, July 16, 6 – 8 pm Sabot at Stony Point, 3400 Stony Point Road
Mix and mingle with great people, enjoy fantastic food and drink and absorb fascinating expert commentary on Richmond history, architecture and culture. Part Happy Hour and part field trip, there’s nothing quite like a Quoit Club event.
Lewis Griffin Larus, vice-president of Larus & Brother tobacco-manufacturing company, built the house c. 1925 to replace an earlier large frame Victorian house which burned in 1924. Richmond architects Henry Baskervill and A. Garey Lambert designed the house in a mixture of English Tudor, Elizabethan and Jacobean styles. This style is occasionally referred to as “Stockbroker’s Tudor,” which reached its height of popularity in the 1920s. The multiple gables, irregular plan, and half-timber and stone construction are characteristic features. The 24-room mansion remained in the family until it was sold for use as a private school.
Event is free for Quoit Club members.
Single Event Tickets: $20 at the door.
