The Endview Plantation may have been something in the good ole days; however, it didn't look like much when we visited. Unfortunately, there was nothing there but a plain house and empty field. When we saw how little was there, we didn't even bother paying...More

I attended three re-enactments at Endview Plantation. Two Re-enactments of the Revolutionary War, and one of the Civil War. Endview does an awesome job scheduling excellent re-enactments of the Revolutionary War, Civil War WW-1, WW-2, and the War of 1812. Hope the City of Newport...More

I was very excited to have time to visit as I had seen it from the road several times. The house itself is old and interesting, however, since it has very little from the original owners they had on display items from that time period....More

Had the tour through the house but didn’t find it too interesting, guide kept referring to the relics in each room but they just seemed to be a bunch of stuff, some of which seemed ordinary and new.

I am not sure if the guide I had was new or if she was having an off day. The house is very basic and some of the rooms are decorated to highlight other aspects of the owner's life instead of for their intended purpose....More

Another hidden place that doesn't get much attention! We bought a combination ticket in conjunction with admission to the Virginia War Museum and Lee Hall Mansion, so that was a good deal. (Discounts are offered for 62+, so it's an even better combo deal.) Our...More

After visiting Lee Hall, I went to this place. It does not look like much, but much happened here. It is worth your time.
