History of Thoroughgood
Thoroughgood has a rich history as well as it's home to the Adam Thoroughgood House [video above], a national historic landmark that is possibly the oldest surviving colonial home in Virginia Beach. This home was believed to have been built in 1680 with complete restoration in 1957 by the city of Virginia Beach. Adam Thoroughgood established a settlement in the early 1600s as an indentured servant and was granted more than 5300 acres in this area. This was the largest land grant in Virginia to date and now contains several neighborhoods including Thoroughgood, Thoroughgood Colony, Lake Smith Terrace, Gracetown, Thoroughgood Estates, Bay Lake Pines, Hermitage townhomes, Bayville Park, Church Point, and Ocean Park.
The historical home is open for guided tours six days a week throughout the year and holds certain events and activities. The home contains a collection of 17th and 18th-century furniture, colonial costumes, and crafts. The community has definitely grown to include these other neighborhoods, more modern developments, and residential subdivisions.
