Property Description

Welcome to "Hopewell," one of Louisa County's most important historic properties. The central portion of the home dates back to 1785 and was owned at that time by Rev. James Waddell, aka, the "Blind Preacher." Other notable visitors include Meriwether Lewis and Gov. James Barbour who were schooled on the property. The home has two newer additions including a two car garage. The historic portion has been thoughtfully restored to respect the home's original 18th Century features. With 147 acres of property in both Albemarle and Louisa counties, the farm is currently used for agricultural farming as well as an Equestrian retreat. 4 Stall Barn and two outbuildings. 90 Acres open, with the remainder wooded.
