This tour showcases five magnificent properties along the Route 17 corridor between Fredericksburg and Port Royal. Exquisite gardens, renowned architectural design and stories of Stonewall Jackson are highlights. The tour includes two charming riverfront homes in Port Royal, one of the few original remaining colonial villages along the east coast, and home to the remarkable events that led to the capture and death of Lincoln’s assassin John Wilkes Booth. This driving tour also features three other historically significant plantations along Route 17 in Caroline County’s unspoiled countryside. Rosehill was recently featured in Garden & Gun magazine.
