Awesome old manor house with a wonderfully dark history. Be sure to check out the escape tunnel that runs to the Appomattox in the basement. Great examples of locally made furniture for the antique enthusiast!

Having toured a few historic homes, this one is pretty neat. You start in the basement for an intro to a tobacco baron family history. Depending on which guide you get, some go into more detail then others but none are disappointing. Once you move...More
