This is just like Lee Hall Mansion. Walking right on history into an old Confederate hospital and plantation. You can walk all around inside as well as on the grounds where you can find old cabins in the woods where soldiers stayed during the winter months. it is definitely creepy and said to be very haunted.

It is really neat to travel back to a time when things were not so hectic. Endview is one of those places. There is so much history in Virginia and Endview is just one of the few plantations left in the area you can see. Interesting family cemetery

The visit is very interesting. I feel that trip to the plantation is historical and all visitors should visit this historic site. You will not be disappointed. Children of all ages need to see the sights. You will not be disappointed.

A bit more historic than the close-by Lee Hall mansion. This house played a role in the Civil War battles taking place in the area now covered by Newport News Park.
