Quoit Club | Tuckahoe Plantation

*This is a MEMBERS ONLY tour

Tuckahoe Plantation is a National Historic Landmark and considered to be one of the finest early 18th century plantation homes in America. The unique H-frame construction house, with it’s elaborate cornices, alcoves, staircases and domed ceilings was the boyhood home of Thomas Jefferson. The one room school house that still stands on site today is the place that Jefferson was first educated. The grounds contain many historic gardens and there are records of the Boxwood maze that was more than 100 years old (until its destruction in the 1970’s) and a feature of the 1929 historic Garden Week.  Although the property and outbuildings are operated as a public site, the house is used as a private residence.
