Thrushcross Grange is a stately home that serves as a foil to Wuthering Heights. It is the official home of the upper social-class and aristocracy, while the Heights involved with its residents in the working class.

The Grange serves as a complete foil to the Heights.


Mr. and Mrs. Linton were the first-known owners of Thrushcross Grange. Their son, Edgar, was born there in 1762 following by their daughter Isabella in 1765. The Linton children grew up being spoiled and pampered by their wealthy lifestyle.

Around the late 1770s, a Gypsy boy named Heathcliff and a dark-haired girl named Catherine Earnshaw, who lived at nearby Wuthering Heights, sneak onto the Grange property where they spied on the Linton children's spoiled lifestyle.
