The 110 acres that comprise Millbank are located west of Port Conway on the north bank of the Rappahannock River and overlook its confluence with Millbank Creek. Composed of pastures, fields, woodland, and landscaped grounds, Millbank encompasses a number of historic resources. The I-house of 1900, which incorporates elements of earlier dwellings on the site, stands atop a series of steep terraces that descend south to the river’s edge. The sites of the kitchen or laundry building and a smokehouse are located on the eastern side of the dwelling. A family cemetery is located at the southeastern corner of the property overlooking the river. An archaeological survey conducted in 1990 identified six archaeological sites on the property dating from the third quarter of the 17th century through the 20th century, including commercial warehouses and a millrace.
