FORT HILL,
PAINT VALLEY

BOURNEVILLE; VIRGINIA MANSIONS

Along the valley near Bourneville stand several very grand old mansions, some built of brick and some in the local Waverly sandstone. Their architectural features and proportions derive from 18th century Virginia, reflecting the architectural tastes as well as the agricultural practices of their builders.

These wealthy, post-Revolutionary War landowners in the new “Virginia Military District” ran vast estates, often with indentured servants, and sent their abundant crops and livestock to the nearby economic hub of Chillicothe.

A Virginia-style mansion stands at the edge of the village of Bourneville, once anchoring a huge estate.
