Point of Honor
Completed in 1815 by Dr. George Cabell, his Federal style mansion overlooking the James River features carefully restored interiors that preserve the classical designs popularized in 19th century America by Owen Biddle and England's William Paine. Remarkable vivid colors and rich, stylish furnishings echo the builder's affection for entertaining in the manner which defines our own notions of Southern hospitality. Dufour's dramatic Monuments of Paris mural paper graces the parlor and compliments the glorious vista of the historic James River seen from its windows. Visit Point of Honor and experience a time of legends and elegance when America was new and Virginians were creating their enduring mark upon the land.
