Visit Chatham Manor

Constructed in 1771, Chatham witnessed the horrors of slavery, the establishment of the United States, conflict surrounding the institution of slavery and Civil War, Reconstruction, Colonial Revivalism and today, the continued struggle to come to terms with the country’s past. Its perch made it a desirable location for the US Army to use as a headquarters for the Battle of Fredericksburg. Its proximity to the river crossing made it a convenient hospital for wounded soldiers.
