Staunton Hill

This mid-nineteenth-century Gothic Revival mansion is the main residence at Staunton Hill, a plantation in Charlotte County that was built by the wealthy planter Charles Bruce and his wife, Sarah Alexander Seddon Bruce. During the Civil War the grounds of the estate were used as a training ground for Confederate artillery.
