Westover Plantation

Virginia Beach



Westover, one of the grandest and most beautiful of the colonial plantations, was built in the mid-eighteenth century by the Byrd family. Long considered a premier example of Georgian architecture in America, the house’s special charm lies in its elegant yet extremely simple form and perfect proportions. Of special interest are the steepness of the roof, the tall chimneys in pairs at both ends of the main house, and the elaborate doorway, which continues to be recognized as "the Westover doorway" despite its adaptation to many other buildings and homes. Shaded by 150-year old tulip poplar trees, Westover’s lawn offers a commanding view of the James River and majestic eagles soaring overhead. Westover's house and lawn provide an ideal and unique backdrop for your wedding day. The main house can accommodate 60 people for sit-down dinner or 100+ for a cocktail format. Larger parties are held outdoors and require a tent. Celebrate love at Westover Plantation.
