NRHP Reference Number


Cobbs Hall is historically significant as one of the plantations associated with the Lee family of Virginia. Built on land in Northumberland County first patented in 1651 by Richard Lee, the immigrant, Cobbs Hall was still in the ownership of his descendants when the property was listed in the Virginia Landmarks Register at the beginning of the 21st century. Architecturally, Cobbs Hall is a two-story brick manor house, not only typical of its time and place, but also noted for its outstanding plasterwork in the ceilings of the central hall and two adjacent double parlors. The present Cobbs Hall was built in 1853 on the foundations of the original house, which was constructed by the Lees circa 1720.
