Went for a walk with my sister around Leeland park, and walked over to see Chatham. She Ives in Fredericksburg but she had never brought me here. It was too late to tour the home, will do that another visit, but the grounds are beautiful, flowers were blooming, and the view of Fredericksburg across the river picturesque!

Another beautiful home in Fredricksburg VA, this is across the river from the Kenmore Manor Plantation. So much history. The grounds very accessible, the docent had a gret story, and the history of the two plantations was great to hear. One home held by the "Blue" and one by the "Gray". Besides serving as a private home, it was also... More

Ver nice historic place it is very well maintained, but it does not have much furniture from the civil war time, very nice explanation of the live on the plantation was done by the guide, by the way very friendly answering questions.

I don't know how I grew up in the area and never made it to Chatham, but I finally did and it was lovely. The gardens in the spring are a real treat - especially the wisteria arches over Greek statues. I loved the music fence, and the views of downtown Fredericksburg were a different perspective. A screened porch to... More

Just down the road from Belmont and still showing the effects of hard times. Fredericksburg is just across the river. Knowing that two other New Jerseyans - Walt Whitman and Clara Barton - were also here gave it special status. And what's with that guy who had two kids 40 years apart!

There is much history behind Chatham Manor that is worth hiring one if the ranger historians that take care of this National Park. This Nanor served ams a hospital for the Union Army during the bloody Civil War. If you enjoy history this Manor has plenty of it and the views of Fredericksburg is fantastic.

Chatham is one of those beautiful Civil War homes. If only the walls could talk. So much history in this estate. It is extremely peaceful and the gardens alone are breathtaking. The park rangers off a short film that is well worth watching. Without knowing the history of Chatham, one cannot understand the significance of this place. Don't forget to... More

Chatham is the English Country Manor that I never saw on my trip to England! Beautiful grounds with a historic setting. You only get to see a few rooms downstairs and they aren't furnished or filled with antiques but they are perfect for visiting. Great guides, take an 45 minutes to an hour and get a view of what Fredericksburg... More

We were driving in Fredericksburg looking for the National Battlefield and got turned around. We found ourselves in front of a National Park Service sign telling us that we were near "Chatham Manor". We had no idea what it was, but decided to follow the long driveway in. What an absolute surprise! The house and grounds were just beautiful. The... More
