Built in 1751 on the site of Algonquin Chief Powhatan's stronghold and estate, Rosewell was considered the best example of Georgian architecture in the country. Perhaps the most notable family member is Susannah Page, mother of President John Tyler. Thomas Jefferson was a frequent guest at Rosewell and is reported to have written an early draft of the Declaration of Independence here. Rosewell is about 90 minutes from Richmond.
