Mankin Mansion in Fairfield District, Henrico County, Virginia.

This structure was built by Edward T. Mankin in 1924. Mankin dedicated his home to his son, Irvin, who was killed in World War I. An inscription in the wood flooring of the main hall states "Irvin Place". E. T. Mankin died July 8, 1951. He established a brickwork operation at this location, which operated until shortly after his death. Mankin produced bricks for the Colonial Williamsburg restoration project during the 1930's as well as for Hudson River mansions and large residences on Monument and Chamberlayne Avenues in Richmond, Virginia. The hive-like brick kilns have been demolished. The main house is surrounded by the remains of a brick-walled formal English garden. Dependencies on the estate include an attached Carriage House, Farmer's Cottage, Summer House and a three-unit garage. This Georgian Revival estate is one of fourteen significant National and State Registered Historic Properties located in Henrico County.
