2013 Preservation Donation

The American Revolution Round Table - Richmond donated its 2013 preservation funds to the Battersea Foundation. Battersea is one of the earliest and finest surviving examples of a five-part, Robert Morris-style Palladian house form in the United States, and is the earliest surviving, fully developed example of this house type in Virginia.

The Foundation's plans for 2014 call for spending as much effort as possible on the restoration of the villa itself. For more information on Battersea:
