After seeing the Fredericksburg Civil War reenactment, and watching the movie “Gods and Generals” we decided to visit this place. The display on Clara Barton was interesting. Clara Barton was a nurse in this building during the Civil War, and went on to found the Red Cross. The view of Fredericksburg is remarkable. There is no admission and this is... More

Chatham Manor is free and run by the National Park Service. The manor was built in the 1700's and it was used as a Union hospital during the Battle of Fredericksburg. Visitors can take a guided tour of the manor as well as wander the beautiful grounds. Informational signs are subtly scattered throughout the area, which tell of the history... More

Chatham provided a unique snapshot in history, capturing the Union occupation in the South. Both the grounds and mansion provide a wealth of information. The park rangers are an invaluable asset to the Chatham experience.

Living local we forget to see what is in our backyard. This is a very nice tour, the view of the river and area is a pleasant surprise. The guides are well versed in the subject and friendly. The entrance fee is minimal and you could knock this visit out in a very short amount of time. Worth the visit

The house is interesting and the exhibits are ok. You learn how the house changed over the years from plantation to hospital to vacation resort. The view across the river into Fredericksburg is amazing.

Lovely old mansion on the river opposing Fredericksburg. Site where Washington stayed when he was in town, several Union officers made it their headquarters during battles of Fredericksburg, assaults on town launched from here, beautiful restored home and grounds. Re-enactors there when we visited and a huge naturalization ceremony taking place. Fantastic view of the city across the river. Worth... More

Magnificent view of Fredericksburg. Free, but worth a stop. Part of the Civil War history and this perspective helped us understand the horror when this was a hospital throughout the battle of Fredericksburg.
