On sale now! Eppington on the Appomattox by Martha W. McCartney
The “crown jewel” of Chesterfield County’s historic homes is Eppington Plantation. It was built circa 1768 by Frances Eppes, VI, the brother-in-law of Thomas Jefferson. The graceful Neo-Palladian architecture of the house is virtually the same today as it was over 200 years ago. Come and unlock it’s many mysteries.
After the Civil War, the house was owned by Henry Cox until he sold it to the Hinds family in 1876.
Eppington remained in the Hinds family until it was gifted to Chesterfield County in 1989
What makes Eppington unique is the perfect proportions in its architecture.
