The Crawfords at Tusculum

Tusculum is the original home of the Crawford family in Amherst county and one of the oldest and most architecturally significant dwellings in the Virginia Piedmont. Built in the 1750's, it features a timber-frame construction and two wings connected by an innovative breezeway.

Tusculum was built in two stages: the initial house was built around 1760 for David Crawford II and a large addition completed around 1805. William Sydney Crawford inherited the house and property from his grandfather sometime after 1762. He had been educated at Princeton, practiced law, and was the clerk of the Amherst County Courts, working out of the "master's office" on the Tusculum grounds.

Tusculum was the birthplace of William Harris Crawford in 1772 and the childhood home of Maria Crawford. She was the wife of Elijah Fletcher and mother of Indiana Fletcher Williams, the founder of Sweet Briar College.
