“site of the first official Thanksgiving”

Virginia’s most historic plantation, site of first official Thanksgiving. The original Georgian mansion, built in 1726 of brick fired on the plantation, occupies a beautifully landscaped hilltop site overlooking the historic James River. The date of the building and the initials of the owners, Benjamin Harrison IV and his wife, Anne appear in a datestone over a side door. The mansion is said to be the oldest 3-story brick house in Virginia that can prove its date and first with a pediment roof. Step back in time with a tour of Berkeley’s 1726 mansion and enjoy the magnificent gardens on the James River. Travel back through time with us to America's first official Thanksgiving - 1619.
