Great Must See Day Trip!

Although located in Surry County, Virginia west of Smithfield and South of the James from Jamestown and Williamsburg, well worth the day trip because of the ancient mansion built in 1665 has a great tour and the outside 17th-century English formal gardens, slave quarters, 1710 Barn, and smokehouse are awesome!
