Fighting Creek, originally part of a 1,699-acre plantation located in Powhatan County and built around 1841, is a good example of a mid-19th-century plantation home. Blending both Classical Revival and Italianate architectural elements in a two-story stucco home with one-story wings, the house retains much historic building material and its original floor plan. According to local tradition, Fighting Creek was designed by renowned New York architect Alexander Jackson Davis (1803-1892), who designed the nearby Gothic Revival Belmead Plantation.
