This mid-eighteenth century building was the home of George Wythe, tutor and friend of Jefferson. Wythe was the first professor of law at an American college, and first Virginian signer of the Declaration of Independence. Washington used the house as his headquarters in 1781 before the siege of Yorktown. Five major outbuildings and garden plan reflect a plantation layout. Furnishings are in the manner of a well-to-do eighteenth-century Virginia household.
