Exquisite view

Beautiful house with a great view overlooking the river and Fredericksburg. Only the main floor open for viewing so not a lot to see in the house but the grounds around have some very nice displays.

Beautiful and Historic Mansion
Oct 2021
Chatham Manor was built in about 1770. It is a wonderfully preserved example of georgian archictecture. The site is delightful, on a hill overlooking the Rappahannock river and Fredericksburg, surrounded by gardens. The building was used as the local Union headquarters during the civil war, and as a civil war hospital. The interior has displays which tell the history of the building and of the people who lived here.

Worth the Stop

We enjoyed the visit to the manor. There was no tour, but the posted information and short video did a nice job giving us a feel for the history of the home.

We enjoyed our tour, the gardens were beautiful, unfortunately it was very hot so we couldn’t go to far. Can’t imagine that beautiful home being surrounded by such destruction and death, so sad.

Quick visit

I visited Chatham Manor in June 2021. The ranger at the Battle of Fredericksburg Gift and Book Shop gave me driving directions. Chatham Manor is closed due to COVID19. I walked around and took some photos. It is still worth seeing.

House served as a headquarters and hospital for the Union army during the Battle of Fredericksburg
May 2021
Ample parking. Free to roam around the grounds and take in the view of Fredericksburg across the Rappahannock River. There is so much history here but house remains closed due to the pandemic. Would have loved to have watched the short film here and hear about the history of this house and land. Many notable people have visited Chatham including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, General Irvin McDowell, Robert E. Lee, Abraham Lincoln, William Henry Harrison and George Marshall. House had served as headquarters and hospital for the Union army during the Battle of Fredericksburg

Confirm the House is Open
Jun 2021
The grounds were open but the manor house itself was closed the day we visited. The gardens were pretty and the view of old Fredricksburg across the river was quite nice.

We would like to go back at some point and see the house when tours are again permitted.

Great view of Fredericksburg
Oct 2020
Beautiful grounds. The building itself was closed. Great view over the river to Fredericksburg, although condos across the river will ruin the view.

Gardens were a hidden surprise!
May 2021
The main building is closed but having been on the trolley tour earlier in the day, we understood the significance of the property. We could freely walk around the grounds and found the most delightful garden in full bloom. Worth checking out even if you can't get in the building. The sites and views were impressive.

A wonderful place with amazing views to get some exercise in all while taking in the beautiful downtown views of the Rappahannock River and downtown Fredericksburg.
