One of the earliest surviving Anglo-Palladian structures in America, Battersea was commissioned in 1768 by Petersburg’s first mayor, Colonel John Banister. Oak trees, magnolias and wildflowers frame the stately grounds. Battersea’s charming location on the banks of the Appomattox River makes it the perfect place for memorable photos that you will treasure for years to come.
