Elsing Green


King William, Virginia (VA), US
Elsing Green Plantation, a National Historic Landmark, rests upon nearly 3,000 acres along the Pamunkey River in King William County, Virginia. The 18th-century plantation, now owned by the Lafferty family, has been in continuous operation for more than 300 years. In addition to the manor house, dependency buildings and cultivated land, Elsing Green includes 2,454 acres of surrounding farmland, forest and marsh land.
Its history dates back nearly three centuries with ties to the West family of Lord Delaware. The original structure, a brick Jacobean lodge now serving as the east dependency of the manor house, was built before 1690 by Colonel John West. It is said that Lord Delaware used the building as his hunting lodge, escaping to the King William woods by way of the Pamunkey River.
