In beautiful Surry County, just across the James River from Jamestown, Chippokes Plantation is one of the oldest continually farmed plantations in the country. In 1619, the property was owned by Capt. William Powell and named in honor of an Indian chief who befriended the early English settlers. Today the park includes the circa 1855 mansion, the Chippokes Farm and Forestry Museum, a saw mill, trails, picnic space, swimming pools, cabins and camping facilities.
