Patricia Castelli, Keswick Hall
May 14, 2016 @ 11:00 am
One house in Keswick has undergone huge transformation over the course of more than 100 years. Keswick Hall began its tenure on the Albemarle County landscape as a private home called Villa Crawford in 1912. The 8000-square-foot house was converted into a country club in the mid-20th century, and re-purposed again 25 years ago when it was greatly enlarged and became a 48-room hotel anchoring a world class resort. Some of its architectural features would be recognizable to the original occupants, yet much has also changed. Resident Historian and Director of Quality and Communication, Patricia Castelli, will discuss the enduring style, shifting functions, and memorable characters that have made Keswick Hall a landmark in the community. Patricia’s book is for sale here during the Design House and historic tours of Keswick Hall are available upon request.
