Edgewood Plantation – its rich, fascinating history creates images of romance, intrigue and antebellum splendor. An exquisite 7,000 square foot example of Carpenter’s Gothic architecture, Edgewood was once a part of Berkeley Plantation, the ancestral home of U.S. Presidents William Henry and Benjamin Harrison, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Throughout its dramatic history, it has served as a church, post office, telephone exchange, restaurant, nursing home and a signal post for the Confederates to spy on McLellan’s Army. Dating circa 1849, this is a National & State regulated landmark.
