Braehead Manor: Your Civil War Concierge
On the morning of the first battle of Fredericksburg in 1862, Robert E. Lee tied his horse to the black walnut tree outside Braehead Manor and took breakfast there.
Braehead is located in Fredericksburg Battlefield National Park, in the heart of Central Virginia’s Civil War attractions, and is now open to the public as a Bed & Breakfast and Event Venue for weddings, family reunions, corporate events and holiday parties.
During the war, the Union Army occupied the house leaving behind graffiti, bayonet marks, bullet holes, and carvings.
If you’re planning a Civil War vacation, there’s no better place to call headquarters.
We can direct you to the Fredericksburg National Cemetery, where over 15,000 Union soldiers are buried.
Stand in front of Chatham Manor, where Union occupants had a bird’s eye view of the battle of Fredericksburg.
Visit Stonewall Jackson’s left arm at Ellwood Manor, where it was buried after being amputated.
Or visit the Stonewall Jackson Shrine to see the room where he died a week later, and listen to the still ticking clock that is among the room’s original furnishings.
Walk through Old Town Fredericksburg, host to a number of Civil War attractions, antique shops, restaurants, and original 18th and 19th century buildings.
While you’re there, stop by the nearby Confederate Cemetery, the final resting place for six Confederate generals and over 3,000 soldiers.
All of these attractions and more are within 30 minutes of Braehead Manor.
So come hitch your horse with us. Braehead Manor is your Civil War Concierge.
