This house has history, but not as much as the museums in the area. I think the tour was 30 min and it didn't take long to tour the grounds. If you have time, great. Otherwise, check out the other plantations.

Neither I nor my children found this tour very interesting. There was a Civil War Campsite set up outside. We went through the house tour that seemed to drag on and then went outside for an informative chat with the re en actors. Would NOT recommend for smaller children. I thought the $7.00 for adults and $5 was too steep.

Worth a stop. Beautiful house, trees, fields and history. You'll probably even see some deer and other animals.

What an awesome program offered to the young kids who love to learn history! My son is so enthralled in American history and specifically Civil War, but we have a difficult time finding reenactments because of his age. This was perfect! He didn't stop smiling the whole week and is so excited for next year! Thank you to the staff... More

Only a small home but very interesting. Lots of family history with items from their past and also civil war artifacts. The guide was very good in explaining the history of the area, house and family Very enjoyable visit.

An interesting place to learn about history. Great terrain and fun for kids interested in battle grounds to run around.

The grounds here make you feel like you just walked into the past. It has a private grave site. Many outbuilding. A Military camp site. There is hitching post for the horses. Spectacular Place to visit. The long driveway leading up to the house. I am sure during the day Lee Hall was considered one of there close neighbors. You... More

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
