Two presidents, John Tyler and William Henry Harrison, once called Sherwood Forest home. This stunning example of Tidewater architectural design was built in 1730 on a plantation granted in 1616. Highlights include a ballroom, added by Tyler for guests to dance the popular Virginia Reel. Stroll through 25 acres of terraced gardens, woodlands and a lawn designed by Andrew Jackson Downing. Sherwood Forest still contains its original outbuildings and is one of the few complete plantation yards in America. The house and land is still owned by Tyler's descendants.
