We arrived at 10:40 on a Saturday after 4th of July so you'd think someone would have been around. The sign on the door said to knock on the administration building but again no one. So we grabbed a walking tour brochure and treked around ourselves. After about 10 mins the kids were bored so we went to try to... More

A great place to learn some history. Wonderful landscape, bring your camera. Wonderful in spring for flowers and early foliage and of course delightful colors of fall. Bring your camera and love of history.

It was set up for the civil war time period which I found interesting. We were focusing on the civil war period having done the revolutionary war three years ago when we were... More

We stopped at Endview to see if we could see any of the house! The gate was open but their were no tours on the day we were there so we just walked around the exterior and viewed the well maintained old house,grounds and out buildings! This would probably be a nice house to tour but at least we did... More

Great piece of revolutionary and confederate history. Get a glimpse of life of middle class on the peninsula.

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.
