Castlewood Plantation House

Castlewood Plantation House

One of the finest Palladian style period houses in Chesterfield County, Castlewood has a five-part building plan that bears no likeness to any other recorded dwelling in Virginia. Its unique place in the county's architectural history makes it a fitting home for the Historical Society, whose offices and research library are located on the first floor. The home's builder, Parke Poindexter, served as clerk of Chesterfield County Court from 1812 until his death in 1847.
