Historic Kenmore Plantation
Kenmore, one of the most elegant colonial mansions in America, lies in the heart of historic Fredericksburg. Built by patriot Fielding Lewis and his wife, Betty (the sister of George Washington), the house contains some of the most elaborate plasterwork from colonial America. It was crafted by an unknown artist who also completed plasterwork at Mount Vernon.
The house has undergone a major restoration, and the refurnishing is underway. Part of the Kenmore collection of ﬁne, Virginia-made furniture is on display in the museum gallery. The house and grounds are open to the public with tours daily.
