Avenel Plantation

Avenel was built circa 1838 by William M. Burwell and his wife, Frances Steptoe Burwell.

Notable visitors included General David Hunter, Mr. and Mrs. Robert E Lee and their daughter.

Avenel can be rented for weddings, receptions, etc...

While googling for info on Avenel, I even found out a movie was made about it! Portrait of a Plantation


  1. And I'm ready for some sweet tea! Wonder where they got the name Avenel.

  2. i know, isn't that the best lemonaide/sweet tea porch?! and hmmmm, great question i'll have another thing to google lol

  3. Mint Juleps would be enjoyable on such a fabulous porch.

  4. This looks like a wonderful place to visit. I could happily spend some time on that porch.
