Explore the 1898, late Victorian London Farm House that has been fully restored and furnished to illustrate rural life in Richmond between 1890 and 1920. London Heritage Farm is one of the earliest farm sites in Richmond. Charles and Henrietta London built a small house on site in 1898 and then added to it in 1906. The farm produced dairy products, oats, wheat barley, fruit from an orchard and vegetables. This riverfront land became known as London’s landing and a wharf was built on the property to provide greater access to the river to send farm products to market. Today visitors can also enjoy beautiful heritage perennial flowers, a kitchen and herb garden, an outside exhibit of large, antique farm equipment and chickens.
