Circa 1849, Edgewood Plantation is an exquisite 7,000 square foot example of 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.

Nestled along the oldest Highway in the U.S., Edgewood's third floor was used during the Civil War as a look out for Confederate generals to spy on McClellan's troops when they were camped at nearby Berkeley Plantation. J.E.B. Stuart stopped for a cup of coffee in 1862 before continuing his famous ride around Gen. George McClellan's forces. A 1725 grist mill built by Benjamin Harrison, colorful gardens and a romantic gazebo are on the grounds as well.

A National & State regulated landmark also operating as a bed and breakfast.
