Gardens and Medicine

A short and pleasant ride just southeast of Fredericksburg, the King George County tour offers visitors an exciting entrée into some of Virginia's most historic and beautiful homes. Established in 1720, and eventually encompassing the land between the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers, King George County became a natural site for many large and prosperous plantations.

Nanzatico - one of the country's finest riverfront Colonial Homes, built by Charles Carter, grandson of King Carter
Rokeby - a handsome Federal style brick house that offers a panoramic view of the Rappahannock River Valley
Berry Plain – a charming 18th century Greek revival house built on a farm
Rappahannock Bend – a beautiful farm overlooking the river that today is stunningly contemporary
