Publisher's Note

Home to Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in the New World, Virginia is in many ways the birthplace of America and the home of U.S. history.  It is also literally the birthplace of eight presidents and numerous Revolutionary and Civil War heroes. Virginia was among the wealthiest southern states in the antebellum period, resulting in a long tradition of stately homes on luxuriant plantations. In addition to their elegant architecture and classic southern styling, these homes feature some of the most extravagant and noteworthy gardens on the eastern seaboard.

 

From the James River Plantations to the Shenandoah foothills, Virginia’s Historic Homes and Gardens celebrates the legendary houses and landscapes of Old Dominion. Virginia natives, the authors travel throughout the state to highlight the best of the famous and lesser-known homes. Including such national landmarks as George Washington’s Mount Vernon and Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, the book brilliantly illustrates the homes’ exteriors and interiors as well as their gardens and landscaping.   Historical details accompany the exquisite color photographs, along with useful information on each site’s location.

VIRGINIA'S HISTORIC HOMES AND GARDENS - Full Color - BRAND NEW HARDCOVER

Condition: This is a NEW item! MINT!

Virginia's Historic Homes and Gardens by Pat Blackley and Chuck Blackley ~ Hardcover

Published at 25.00

From the first landing at Jamestown in 1607—establishing the first permanent English settlement in North America—the state of Virginia has been at the forefront of the nation’s history and its architecture. The early Colonial-era residences formed the foundation for a storied tradition of fine homes, luscious gardens, and sprawling estates. Through the struggle for independence and the formative years of the young republic, prominent businessmen and politicians constructed grand homes that reflected worldly styles infused with uniquely American innovations.

Many of the nation’s founding fathers—including future presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe—built elaborate showplaces that remain, centuries later, cherished national landmarks. The birthplaces of General Robert E. Lee, Woodrow Wilson, and many of Virginia’s heroes and innovators are here to be explored, from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean to the foothills of the Blue Ridge.

Several of Virginia’s classic homes that stand today survived the battlefields of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Others weathered neglect from owners who lost the means to support the grand lifestyles the homes represented. Fortunately, an appreciation for Virginia’s rich history and architectural heritage has led many of the finest homes, dating back to the seventeenth century, to be restored to their original glory.
