Owner description: Living history museum recounts how America's Civil War had shaped the country's culture, lifestyle, economy and technology.
Reviewed December 5, 2011

As a history buff, this was quite interesting to me, though it could be a lot better, and probably will be some day. Endview sits a short distance form Lee Hall, so definitely do them together. And take a quick jaunt across the road to Lebanon church while you are there. Endview has a small museum on the lower floor, telling some of the history of the site, with a few artifacts. Then a tour guide takes you upstairs to see the small home. I enjoyed seeing the home, but found the tour a bit lacking. Didn't get much of a feel for the occupants of the home and the items on display were pretty standard fare and mostly related to the civil war (the home is marketing itself as a civil war site, though that is only part of its history). Outside, there are two cemetery sites, a small spring (my favorite thing) which has been active throughout the properties' history, and a recreated civil war camp area. Overall, worth the trip, especially since you can combine it with Lee Hall.
