Oak Lodge, Richmond

Oak Lodge at 18 Bridge Street, Richmond is a highly regarded Georgian house in largely original condition, owned by the National Trust and run as a local museum by Coal River Valley Historical Society volunteers.

Built in 1831, Oak Lodge is in largely original condition, down to the cellar, unique staircases, door locks and cedar joinery, original cobblestone paths, stables and garden.

Oak Lodge is the only historic home open to the public in Richmond – a home that was built and lived in by everyday, successful people – where visitors can enter each room and handle most of the exhibits.

The house itself is a time capsule, with a lack of modern facilities that shows the lifestyles of the Booths, the Clarks, the Horsfall sisters and others who made Oak Lodge their home.
