Kittiewan 12104 Weyanoke Road

The original property where Kittiewan is sited was given by Chief Opechancanough, half-brother and successor of Chief Powhatan, to Virginia Governor George Yeardley in 1617. At that time, the plantation consisted of over 1,000 acres and was known to native Americans as Kenwan. It now encompasses 700 acres.

The core of the 1 1/2 story colonial plantation house of heart pine was built before 1728. The extraordinary paneling in the main drawing room is considered to be comparable to any of the best in the country.

Several families have occupied Kittiewan. About 1640, William Justice, an active member of the House of Burgesses at Jamestown, acquired Kittiewan and it remained in the Justice family until 1768 when Dr. William Rickman bought the plantation. Dr. Rickman was elected Director and Chief Physician of the hospitals in Virginia by the Contintental Congress in 1776, a position he held until 1780. Most recently, Kittiewan was the home of Wilma and Bill Cropper, both of whom are now deceased.  The property is now held by the Archaeological Society of Virginia.
