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.
Friendly staff, interesting history, beautiful grounds, AWESOME unique civil war summer camp for kids.
Its a small house, the restoration okay. Did have quite a bit of Civil War artifacts. Don't think it was worth the entry fee. What we did find interesting was talking to the archeologist that was working on the kitchen dig. The outside fo the house and the land surrounding it is open to the public w/o admission fee and...

Nice place to spend a few hours, some hidden trails on the property you can explore in addition to the tour of the house, check out the bridge by the stream!
I know it sounds weird, but I like plantations to have at least some of their outside buildings still around. The Plantation house itself is nicely kept and a lot of things happened there, which makes it interesting, but be sure to go on a day you can walk the trail back to the springs and the sharecropper area and...
