  • Robert Nicholson, who would become one of Williamsburg's most prosperous tailors and merchants, began construction of this unique house in the early 1750s.
  • He first built a small, neat frame dwelling featuring a side entryway.
  • He later decided to double the size of his house by adding a west wing adjoining the house at the side passage, thereby making the side door the new center of the house.
  • Proof of this transformation is the ever-so-slightly off-center doorway, a quaint feature that distinguishes many old homes that that have undergone alterations over the centuries.
  • Many original elements of the Nicolson house remain virtually intact today: original heart pine flooring, panel wainscoting, turned stair balusters and finely molded dentils.
  • Commodious, yet simple and unpretentious, this home is a premier example of early Virginia architecture.
