Past Preservation - Nuckols House - Kent

Nuckols House, which was moved from Henrico County, Virginia to New Kent County, Virginia.

The Association for the Preservation of Henrico Antiquities (APHA) purchased the Nuckols Farm from the developer, Wilton Development Corporation, who worked with them until a buyer could be found that would be willing to restore the house. They listed the property on a nationwide Historic Property website and a buyer was found. APHA and the Wilton Development Corporation both received Historic Preservation Advisory Committee Awards of Merit in 2004 as a result of this project.

The farmhouse, an early 19th century Henrico County dwelling, is a classic example of a house which has seen so many changes through the years that its original form was completely obscured. Much original interior detailing remained, including an enclosed winding stair and simple Federal mantels with plain architrave surrounds. To the rear of the house stood the ruins of a sandstone rubble chimney belonging to the former detached kitchen. The house was inhabited by five generations of the Nuckols family. The house was formerly located on Shady Grove Road, nearby to Nuckols Road, which was named for T. M. Nuckols, who owned the farm in the early part of the 20th century. The farmhouse was disassembled; it will be re-assembled in New Kent County, VA.
