Historic Henderson Hall and Marietta, Ohio

This plantation home along the Ohio River gives a view of the American Victorian era. Originally 2600 acres it held a plantation, horse breeding farm, oil field, and river port. Six generations from the 1700s to the 20th century lived in the home and it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Located in Williamstown, West Virginia, the 5 generations who lived in the home began with Scottish born Alexander Henderson, Sr., who served in the 1700s as a member of the House of Burgesses.

There are many events at the home and information regarding these events can be obtained at http://www.hendersonhallwv.com. A truly fascinating tour!

And down the road from Williamstown is Marietta, Ohio..

The Lafayette is a grand historical landmark. The rooms are sanctuaries of early American antiques. The hotel dates from 1892. If a history buff this is a property to visit and stay.
