Westover was built in 1730 by the founder of Richmond, William Byrd. The view of the river and the beauty of the house and grounds make this one of the most enchanting spots in Virginia. The Elizabethan knot garden, a majestic gate topped with sculptures of metal and stone and sprawling lawns dotted with century-old tulip poplars are a delight to encounter. The intricately carved banister of the massive staircase is amazingly detailed. Charles City is about 1 1/2 hours from Richmond. Take I-64 east to Route 155 south to Route 5.
This charming white clapboard home is part of one of Virginia's oldest plantations. Built in the early 1700s, it was purchased in 1770 by the renowned patriot Patrick Henry, perhaps most well-known for his "Give me liberty, or give me death" speech delivered at St John's Church in Richmond. He lived here with his wife, Sarah, and their six children. The house displays many of Henry's personal effects including a desk and his law library. Scotchtown is just north of Richmond and eleven miles northwest of Ashland, a charming Victorian railroad town.
Merchant's Hope church was owned by a English trader, who named it after a plantation and a British ship. This church that was established in 1657, was incorporated in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1969.
