Built in 1823, Centre Hill remained an opulent Petersburg residence until 1936. Often described as a symbol of the grandeur of nineteenth-century Virginia aristocracy, the home's interior features outstanding examples of Greek Revival, Federal and Colonial Revival architecture. During a guided tour you will learn about the Mansion's history, including its role during the Civil War and visits by Presidents Abraham Lincoln and William Howard Taft.
