Weston Plantation

Weston Plantation, built in 1789, is an elegant, five-bay home overlooking the Appomattox River in Hopewell. Emma Woods, a 12 year-old who moved to Weston during the last months of the Civil War, kept a journal of her family's experience there. Emma notes in her diary that her sister fell sick and was attended by President Lincoln's Surgeon General Dr. Joseph K. Barnes. Barnes was with President Lincoln in his final hours and was present at his death. Admission fee charged. Gift shop on site.
