Three Chopt District Historic Sites - Cheswick

Cheswick in Three Chopt District, Henrico County, Virginia.

A local couple purchased Cheswick and moved it to Three Chopt Road. Cheswick remains a fine example of an early 19th century one-and-a-half story, center-hall plan dwelling, despite the fact its chimneys and brickwork were altered in the course of moving. Dr. Exall, a Baptist minister, ran a boarding school at Cheswick prior to the Civil War. An advertisement in a Richmond paper noted that the school was located in a "dry and healthful climate" immune from the hazards of malaria. The Franklin family, who acquired the farm in the 1880s, sold it in 1973 to the present owners.

  • Privately owned.
