Year Round Tours

Historic Edgewood Plantation

Historic Tours

The 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.
