Westbourne, Home of the Douglas Southall Freeman Family

This is the colonnaded exterior of Westbourne, the Richmond home of author Douglas Southall Freeman and his family. Also known as Pinehurst, this historic house was built in the Georgian Revival style in 1919 for Abram L. McClellan, a wealthy businessman and real estate developer. Noted landscape architect Charles F. Gillette designed the extensive gardens on the property.

Freeman died of a heart attack at Westbourne in 1953.
