“Historic Jasmine Plantation”
Jasmine Plantation, located in historic New Kent County, Virginia, was originally patented by George Morris in 1680. Morris was a surveyor and a friend of George Washington. He was also a member of the Virginia House of Burgesses from New Kent County. The existing house, built 1750, is located in front of the original Morris homesite and was used as a headquarters for Gen. Washington's Revolutionary Army on Oct. 8th, 1779. Exercises were performed in the front pasture. Two regiments were documented as performing specific exercises from 9:00 to 11:00 AM and from 3:00 to half past 4:00 PM each day. Jasmine Plantation at one time consisted of 1,100 acres, being virtually self-sufficient. It stayed in by the Morris family for more than 100 years, until 1850.
