|Rosewell Plantation: Gloucester, Virginia
This was the highlight of our trip to the Northern Neck. Rosewell was a plantation house that was built between 1725 and 1738. It was an amazing home. You don't get a feel for how large this house was until you look at the photo #6602. In that photo, you'll see Laura walking on the left side of the building. Keep that in mind as you look at these ruins.
The home burned in 1916. It was left as a ruin for many years and was reclaimed by the forest. In 1968 excavation started. It was opened to the public in the early 1970s. I'll let the photos do the talking. This place was amazing to photograph.
