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.

Our group of three (all adults) visited Endview the same afternoon that we visited the nearby Lee Hall Mansion. Both sites are worth visiting. Tours of the historic house are guided. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the house and the area's local history. Endview is approx. 100 years older than Lee Hall, and I found it fascinating that it... More

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.

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...

House isn't as big as some "plantations" but the tour was very interesting. Since the house was used at one point as a Union Hospital, there were very interesting displays about medical treatments and other info on civil war.

If you want to learn more about the history of the area and the people who settled it this is a place to see. Plantations were so beautiful and it is wonderful that this one and some others were saved and restored to their original state. They should be saved so that everyone can learn of the history of our... More
