1. Tudor Hall Marker
Inscription. William Boisseau, a tobacco farmer, constructed Tudor Hall around 1812. Originally two rooms wide and one room deep, this style of house was popular in Dinwiddie County during the late 1700s and early 1800s. In the 1850s Joseph G. Boisseau, Williamís son, renovated the house. He expanded the east side, created a central hall, and added Greek Revival details inside and out. None of the original furnishings remain, but period antiques adorn the interior. Wallpaper, floor coverings, and color schemes have been reproduced based on paint analysis and popular fashions of the 1860s.
