Event Description:


From April 1670 to the present, Belle Grove Plantation has stood as a witness to America’s Historic Events. The birthplace of President James Madison as well as his mother, Nelly Conway Madison’s childhood home, Belle Grove has been the site of many events throughout history. President George Washington was a frequent visitor here. Held as a Union Headquarters from 1861 to the end of the Civil War, Generals Lee, Jackson and Burnside have all stepped foot here. In 1865, the Union Detachment pursuing John Wilkes Booth stopped for the night and slept here. On August 1, 2013, Belle Grove Plantation was opened to the public for the first time. As a bed and breakfast, historic site and special event venue, Belle Grove Plantation has welcomed visitors from all over the world. In Celebration of America’s History, we will be opening Belle Grove Plantation’s Historic 1791 Mansion for one-hour tours on Thursday, July 4th from 10am to 4pm. In celebration of 4th, we will offer a special price of just $5 per person (all ages) for this one day. Each paid tour will get the opportunity to enter for special door prizes. We invite you to come and see our historic mansion and walk were great men have walked. Advance tickets may be purchased online and are highly recommended.
