This plantation is in the shade of tulip poplar trees that are 150 years old.

From the Westover Plantation, there is a beautiful view of the James River. The plantation was built in 1730 with Georgian architecture by William Byrd II, founder of Richmond and Petersburg, Virginia. The Westover Plantation is known for the finest 18th-century iron gates in this country. The self-guided grounds tour includes a walled garden, original dependencies, the original site of the Charles City Courthouse, and the Westover Parish Church and graveyard. Visitors can walk the extensive grounds, explore the beautiful formal gardens, and check out the old outbuildings which can be toured daily. The house tours may be scheduled by appointment by calling or through e-mail. The grounds and Garden Fee is $5 and interior house tours are $25. The current owners are Andrea and Rob Erda. The main house is also open for tours during Westover Church's Autumn Pilgrimage and Sunday - Tuesday during Historic Garden Week. The plantation is a National Historic Landmark and on the Register of Historic Places of Virginia.
