This Federal-style plantation house near the Meherrin River in Brunswick County was built in 1810 by the Revolutionary War Colonel John (“Hellcat”) Jones, Jr. It was noted for its fine brickwork and intricately detailed Federal woodwork. A fire in June 1974, sparked by plumbing work during restoration work within the frame wing of the house, destroyed all but the brick chimneys.
