Petersburg

 

Centuries of history abound on this driving tour in Prince George County, east of Petersburg. Two featured properties have their roots back to the 1600s. Martin’s Brandon Episcopal Church parish began in 1618. The congregation has maintained continuous worship over 400 years. Today, it meets in its fourth church building. Flowerdew Hundred was established dating back to the 1600s on the south bank of the James River and originally consisted of 1,000 acres. Visitors will enjoy access to the third manor house built on the property, which was constructed between 1990 and 1999. Its impressive 14,000 square feet include 12 bedrooms. The site’s colorful history will be shared by speakers and exhibits, which are included in the tour ticket. It is showcased on the 2023 Historic Garden Week Guidebook. Sitting in a lovely grove of trees, Aberdeen, circa 1790-1810, stands overlooking plowed and planted fields and the owner’s vineyard. This stately brick temple-form home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
