Bassett Hall

Bassett Hall

One of the restored 18th-century properties at Colonial Williamsburg, this was the Williamsburg home of Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller Jr. whenever they came to town. Unlike the rest of the colonial town, this property has been restored to the period of the Rockefeller residency and is furnished with comfortable furniture and dazzling folk art that Mrs. Rockefeller loved. Visitors can tour the house and out-buildings, as well as the 14 acres of gardens and extensive woodlands.

We hope you enjoy our work.
