Springfield Plantation in Halifax County, Virginia, a quiet world of pine forests, tobacco fields and rolling farm land.

This rare Greek Revival home boasts of outstanding craftsmanship second to none. Retained by the same family for over seven generations, this gem retains the grace and simplicity of a by gone era, perfectly restored and at the same time, brought into the 21st Century with modern amenities. Originally constructed under the architectural oversight of Jeffersonian architect and builder, Dabney Minor Cosby and master craftsman Thomas Day of Milton, NC. While no two of the four mantles carved by Day are alike, the parlor fireplace Ionic capital columns are a duplication of the columns on the front porch. The wildly imaginative "S" shaped newel post on the staircase complements the simple, unturned balusters and beautiful vine leaf spandrel. Beautifully trimmed niches incorporated on either side of the fireplaces originally showcased the portraits of owners David and Sarah Chalmers and are used today as a backdrop for fine furniture pieces. Until 2002, Springfield had remained in its original condition with the exception of a kitchen and bath added.
