Search Williamsburg Virginia

Located six miles from Williamsburg, Carter's Grove was begun in 1750 by Carter Burwell, grandson of the original Robert "King" Carter. Robert gave the land to his daughter Elizabeth by his will. She married Nathaniel Burwell, and their son Carter Burwell built Carter's Grove, completing the structure around 1753. This house was symbolic of Burwell's wealth and prominence in the colony and was the center of an agricultural enterprise that encompassed five neighboring plantations.
