Historic Plantation Hidden in the Forest | Rosewell Planation built in 1725

For anyone that loves to marvel at old architecture this is the place for you. Construction on the Rosewell Plantation began in 1725 by Mann Page. Page intended for his mansion to rival or exceed in size the luxury of the newly completed Governor's Palace in Williamsburg. In 1730 Mann Page passed away leaving the property to his wife, Judith Page. The property went on to completion at 12,000 square feet and was said to nearly double the size of the Governor's Palace that Mann had dreamed to exceed. This property was truly the marvel of the area. Over the following years it passed hands several times before tragedy struck in 1916 with a fire that burned it to the ground.
