NRHP Reference Number


Curles Neck Farm, in Henrico County, is situated at the heart of the James River’s Curles Neck peninsula, one of the earliest European-settled sites in Virginia. The farm’s legacy extends back to the Curles Neck Plantation, among the oldest, largest and most productive of the James River plantations. Today’s 156-acre farm, under continuous cultivation since circa 1630, features a ca.-1896 high-style Colonial-Revival mansion built in the long-standing tradition of the great Virginia plantation homes and 17 farm-related historic structures, including barns  and an evolved Victorian Italianate store and farm office, as well as dwellings for farm laborers in the Craftsman architectural style.
