Historic Houses of Virginia: Great Plantation Houses, Mansions, and Country Places Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the Tidewater region of its Atlantic Shore to the Blue Ridge Mountains, Virginia has some of the most architecturally rich, and perhaps the most historically important, homes in America. The treasures of American heritage showcased in this volume range in time from the seventeenth century to the twentieth, and include such peerless masterpieces as Colonial Williamsburg's Governor's Palace, George Washington's Mt. Vernon, Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, Robert E. Lee's Arlington House, and Stratford Hall Plantation—all presented in new photography commissioned for this book, the first to feature in one place the beautiful houses of some of this country's most influential and renowned citizens. Each home shown is either linked to a famous American region or event, or is a National Historic Landmark, a Virginia State Historic Landmark, or listed on the National Register of Historic Places or on other landmark registers.
