Built in 1822 by William Winfree, Magnolia Grange is a beautiful and carefully restored Federal-style plantation home. The house features wallpaper and carpeting which are not usually found in other Richmond area restored homes. Magnolia is also noted for its elaborate ceiling medalions and carvings on its doors, windows and mantels.
The Chesterfield Plantation was built by Parke Poindexter, a Clerk of the Court at Chesterfield County from 1812 until 1847. It currently serves as the headquarters for the Chesterfield Historical Society and holds a research library that is free to the public. In addition to the rich architecture that you'll be able to enjoy upon visiting, there are also artifacts from the era that will be available to see: collections of manuscripts, database of veterans, family files, scrapbooks and more. This is a historical experience that is both fun and educational and appropriate for all ages.
