Description
From the Tidewater region along the Chesapeake Bay to the Blue Ridge Mountains in the western part of the state, Virginia has some of the most architecturally rich and historically important homes in America, many of which are National or Virginia Historic Landmarks or are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Showcased here in sweeping, sharply focused color photos—many filling two large pages—are 20 such outstanding residences, including the Governor's Palace at Colonial Williamsburg, George Washington's Mt. Vernon, Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, Robert E. Lee's Arlington House, and Stratford Hall Plantation. Each great house is also profiled for its historical and architectural significance and preservation, with house museum information and further resources listed.

"Authoritative yet accessible.... [Steven] Brooke's color pictures offer a close, exceptionally rewarding encounter with each house."—Architectural Digest

"Well-researched text offers a broad view of how the gentry lived. It's a perfect book for that Queen Anne coffee table."—Washington Post
