DescriptionWestover, one of the grandest and most beautiful of the colonial plantations, was built in the mid-eighteenth century by the Byrd family. Long considered a premier example of Georgian architecture in America, the house's special charm lies in its elegant yet extremely simple form and perfect proportions. Of special interest are the steepness of the roof, the tall chimneys in pairs at both ends of the main house, and the elaborate doorway, which continues to be recognized as the Westover doorway despite its adaptation to many other buildings and homes. Shaded by 150-year old tulip poplar trees, Westover's lawn offers a commanding view of the James River and majestic eagles soaring overhead. Grounds and Garden open year-round for small admission; interior of house open for VA Historic Garden Week and by appointment. Call 804-829-2882 for more information.
