Endview Plantation


Built in 1769 by William Harwood, the ‘T'- frame Georgian-style house renamed Endview in the 1850s, served as a Confederate hospital during the 1862 Peninsula Campaign. Surrounded by prime farmland, Harwood situated his home atop a little knoll with a spring at the base. The inviting location, with its abundance of game and fresh water had attracted bands of Native Americans as early as 1,200 BC. Archaeological evidence has shown that the later Woodland-Riverine tribes, popularly known as the Powhatan Confederation, seasonally occupied the area up to the time of the English settlement at Jamestown in 1607.
