FRANCIS LAND HOUSE
Visitors to the City of Virginia Beach can tour the beautiful early 19th- century home of Francis Land. Mr. Land was the sixth-generation of his family to live in the area. The home was once part of a large plantation that produced primarily grain crops. The house is furnished with period antiques and reproductions. Tours are led by costumed guides who relate the story of the Land family and life on a plantation. Also available for viewing are a period herb, pleasure, and vegetable garden. Visitors can take a stroll on the nearby Francis Land House history and nature trail. The house is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Last tour of the day is at 4:30 p.m. The house is closed on Mondays. Admission is $4.00 for adults; $3.00 for seniors; $2.00 for children over 6; free for children under 6.

Women in India wear traditional saris or Punjabi suits. Pictured in photos 12-14 is Kaylen Hopkins explaining the different parts of a Punjabi suit during a presentation to the Girl Scout Council of Colonial Coast Afterschool program.
Kaylen is showing one of the many ways to wear a dupatta, the scarf traditionally worn with the Punjabi suit. In photo 13, she discusses the blouse called a kameez. In picture 14 she shows the pleated baggy pants called salwars.

Kaylen conducted a workshop at A Place for Girls in ChesapeakeVirginia to teach girls the art of using henna. Girls drew designs on table banners using traditional templates used by women in India. The banners were placed at the Francis Land House museum as part of the Global Friendship Exhibit.
