Chatham Manor: Part 1
This past Sunday we visited Chatham Manor on the Rappahannock River in Stafford County (just across from downtown Fredericksburg). It was beautiful and old! I loved taking pictures (as you’ll totally see in a sec). For more than 100 years, this was the center of a large plantation. It’s also only one of three houses visited by both Abraham Lincoln and George Washington (nooooooooo, not at the same time – duh). By the way, the other two houses where this has happened are Mount Vernon (also in our neck of the woods somewhat) and Berkeley Plantation.
Folks, my history lesson abruptly stops there. For further historically accurate information, you’ll have to consult my park ranger of a husband. For now you’ll just have to enjoy my photos from that beautiful day.
