Eppington built circa 1768 in Chesterfield County, VA., was the home of Frances Eppes VI, a prominent farmer and brother in law of Thomas Jefferson. In 1989, Chesterfield County accepted the plantation house and 43 acres of land from the Hinds/Cherry family which includes the cemetery. Mary Ellen Howe triggered the property donation and referred to Eppington as the “crown jewel” of the County’s historic homes.
It is registered as a National, Virginia State and Chesterfield County Historic Landmark.
Eppington is open to the public by appointment during the year and has an annual open house in the fall free to the public with many activities. Contact Chesterfield County Parks at (804) 748-1623.
