Historic Lynnhaven House and Grounds to Close April 7 to 11

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

​From April 7 to 11, the Colonial Education Center and Lynnhaven House will be closed. During this time, the floors of the Colonial Education Center will be sanded and refinished. Additionally, the city’s Landscape Management staff will remove brush, overgrowth and dead or hazardous trees near the historic Boush family cemetery and the Lynnhaven House. Other trees will be pruned according to recommendations from the city arborist. Because of this work, the grounds will be closed to the public as well. 

Staff offices will relocate temporarily to the Francis Land House at 3131 Virginia Beach Blvd. The Colonial Education Center and Lynnhaven House will reopen Saturday, April 12, at 10 a.m.


The Lynnhaven House is one of the oldest surviving colonial homes in Virginia, dating to 1725.  The Lynnhaven House Colonial Education Center is located at 4409 Wishart Road. For more information, call (757) 460-7588 or 460-7530 or visit http://www.museumsvb.org.
