Blenheim Plantation

A real estate firm in Richmond advertises Blenheim plantation in Caroline County for possible sale or rent in the early twentieth century. Sepia-toned photographs of the house and grounds are affixed to a sheet with handwritten notations stating that the plantation house was constructed in 1705 and that the estate includes 600 acres near the Mattaponi River. In fact, the Georgian-style mansion was built circa 1745 for Zachary Taliaferro.
