Jamestown, Virginia

Jacquelin - Ambler Mansion: Following removal of the Capitol in 1689, Jamestown declined.  Just as it fostered the beginning of Virginia's tobacco plantation system, Jamestown itself became part of one of those plantations.  These ruins are of the central section of a hansome mansion built by Edward Jacquelin in 1710.  The plantation was later acquired through marriage by Richard Ambler of Yorktown.  In the following century, two great wars bought destruction to the mansion.  Twice rebuilt, the Jacquelin - Amber Mansion burned for the last time in 1895.
