Westover Plantation, James River Plantations...a magical place to visit

Westover Plantation on the James River in Charles City, Virginia, is one of the grandest and most beautiful of the colonial plantations.

Built in 1718 by the first keeper of Williamsburg's Magazine, John Brush's five-bay, timber framed, story-and-a-half house of hand-split weatherboard stands in modest contrast to its lofty next-door neighbor, the Governor's Palace. But it is not without elegance of its own.

Some of my favorite houses at Williamsburg are the simple, elegant central passage houses which became known as Virginia Colonial, Tidewater cottages, or Southern Colonial in Maryland and the Carolinas.
