This was a nice stop on our way to the Outer Banks. It is an interesting house with an equally interesting history. The grounds were beautiful! If you're into Civil War history then this is a good stop to make

There is a movie to help you understand the significance of the site and the people involved. The garden is beautiful.

Chatham takes you back in time to the Colonial era and the Civil War era. It was a Union hospital. It overlooks Fredericksburg across the river. It's so peaceful.

We visited in late April and the gardens are absolutely beautiful with the flowering trees and flowering gardens themselves. There is a movie that tells the history of the Manor and exhibits to view. Great view of Fredericksburg from the front lawn.

Yes - there is a grassy area close to the car park, or the terraced lawn area looking over the river and the town of Fredericksburg. But it is a bit of a walk from the car around the back of the house!

Hi There is not a fee and there is a park called John Lee Pratt Park adjacent to the manor with a large parking area if the one at the manor is too small or full.
