Facility:Riddick's Folly
Description:While Mills Riddick's contemporaries may have mocked his Greek Revival home when it was built in 1837, the house now stands as a beautiful reminder of the past. This most impressive structure on Main Street in Suffolk features striking architectural details. Riddick's Folly has four floors, twenty-one rooms, and sixteen fireplaces. All four floors are open to the public. The building features elegantly furnished double parlors, a gentlemen's library, and adult and children's bedchambers. Also open are the laundry and dining rooms. Special exhibit galleries include those honoring former Governor Mills E. Godwin, Jr., an exhibit celebrating the peanut industry in Suffolk, and a gallery for quarterly changing exhibits. Riddick's Folly also offers a tastefully stocked Gift Shop.
