Visit Agecroft, and you'll walk into the lives of the landed gentry in England's Tudor and
early Stuart periods.
Tour the Great Hall, and you'll imagine the feasts and merriment its richly-paneled walls have seen.
Enter the manor's Great Parlour, where family and guests retreated for comfort, privacy and 16th- and 17th-century diversions. Peruse the sleeping chambers, where residents not only rested, but also dressed and dined.
From its "dyninge parlour," up its intricately carved staircases and through its noble passageways, this manor home has 500 years of stories to tell.
The Great Hall's leaded glass window was transported from England completely intact.
A 1610 lantern clock
telling only the hour, proof of the manor home's slower tempo. A 1566 portrait of William
Dauntesey, which originally graced the walls of Agecroft in England. A 17th-century
bedstead of painted wood, a rare example of this decorative style.
An embroidered portrait of Charles I, circa 1645.
