Construction on this architectural gem, the largest octagonal house in the U.S., began in 1860, but was interrupted by the onset of war. A National Historic Landmark, the still-unfinished mansion is an enduring symbol of the impact of the Civil War.

Short drive from our hotel to this home, and it is incredible to see. Is unfinished inside on the upper floors, and the history behind it is fascinating

Longwood was very interesting and beautiful, even though it wasn't completed. I am disabled and use a cane. Walking up the stairs is difficult and it is not wheelchair friendly like accessible. It is a beautiful location, though.

Different from any pre- civil war home I have seen. Almost ghostly with the unfinished levels reaching skyward

Around 40 minutes. All tours of the house are guided but you are free to wander the grounds at your leisure.

I don't think you need an advance reservation. However, for the tours, I believe they run every 1/2 hour. If you will check in at the visitor center (on the ground floor), they will advise you. Don't miss the tour, for... More
