Gaines mill and watt home

Hanover County, Virginia
No tours allowed at this house as it is a private residence

I assume a Robins nest?   I guess this is as safe as any place to build a nest


  1. I like the chimneys but not the cannons

  2. Hi Betsy,
    What a great post. I love plantation houses and the history behind them. My great, great grandfather was a KIDD. I have to wonder if they are of any relation. How sweet is that to have a sweet little nest in that cannon?
    Thanks for sharing,

  3. Great post. I still have going to the east coast on my bucket list. You have so much history that we simply do not have in the west.

    Thank you for sharing
