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.

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.
