Inscription
During the 17th century Carter's Grove was part of the Martin's Hundred Plantation. In the early 1720's, Robert "King" Carter purchased it and later named the tract Carter's Grove. Between 1730 and 1735 Carter Burwell, grandson of Robert "King" Carter, built the Carter's Grove mansion, a famous example of colonial Virginia plantation architecture. Burwell hired brickmason David Minitree to make and lay brick; he brought Richard Bayliss, and English joiner, to Virginia to execute the interior woodwork, some of the handsomest of the area. The house stood almost unaltered until 1928 when it was renovated and enlarged by the architect W. Duncan Lee.
