Constructed in 1858, Annefield is one of only two known Charlotte County plantation houses built in the style of Jacob W. Holt, a noted builder active in Southside Virginia and northern North Carolina during the middle of the 19th century. The property served as a seat for prominent area families from the mid-18th-century well into the 20th century. Hillery M.L. Goode, a local planter, businessman, and legislator, commissioned the present house, a rare example of the antebellum high-style in the county. In addition to the main house, stylistic evidence suggests that Holt also designed and built the kitchen quarter and smokehouse. Annefield represents a relatively intact antebellum farm complex.
