Winterham Plantation is an enchanting place where love is always magical!

It was a beautiful spring day, the sun was out and there was not a cloud in the sky. A far cry from the weeks of rain that preceded this one. And walking out into…


Good morning, we have been working on merging Winterham Plantation business pages without keeping old accounts active. Finally with the help of FB support, it's done and accomplished. The only problem is, all the recent reviews are gone. If you've visited Winterham, we would like for you to take the time to write a quick review for us. I apologize to those who have already written beautiful reviews for us, unfortunately they are gone, but still very much appreciated. Thank you to everyone for your support.

General information

Gary and Kathy Hadfield are native Utahans who met in New York City. Kathy had worked and studied there for several years, where she pursued graduate studies in art history at Columbia University and Hunter College (after graduating from the Univ. of Utah in anthropology). She also worked at Spanierman Galleries in NYC. Gary was pursuing post doctoral studies in pathology (Cornell U.), neuropathology (Montefiore Hosp./Eistein School of Med.) and neurochemistry (NYU) (after graduating from BYU in French and the U. of Utah in Medicine). The couple came to Virginia in 1970 when Dr. Hadfield joined the faculty of the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond. The Hadfields bought Dykeland, a sister plantation, in 1971, restored it and placed it on the National Register. Mrs. Hadfield's 1979 volume, 'Amelia County Virginia Building Survey' was a preservation effort aimed at halting the destruction of historic buildings. Winterham was in dire need of preservation, so they took it on. The original Winterham, built by the Booker family in the mid 18th century, stood nearby. The present replacement structure, designed by Thomas Tabb Giles, was built for a cousin of Thomas Jefferson, John Garland Jefferson and his wife Otelia, ca.1855. The original architectural drawings are held by Virginia Historical Society. The Jeffersons had several slaves working their large plantation. The last family members to occupy Winterham were Judge Jefferson and his sister, Mary, who built a large Jefferson house in Amelia Courthouse. The Winterham acreage has been used as a dairy and cattle farm, more recently owned by a German, Herr Ritter, who sold it to Watkins nursery, ca 1998, for their nursery operation. The Watkins sold the house and 15 acres to the Hadfields in 1999. It is hoped that the current extensive restoration, finished in 2003, will see the manor home through another sesquicentennial. Winterham lay gutted, shuttered and empty for over twenty years until Dr. M. Gary and Mrs. Kathleen Hadfield bought the property in 1999. After a year of careful architectural studies, restoration began. The entire house was lifted on hydraulic jacks to excavate and create a new home under the existing historic home (The large Garden Terrace family- friendly 'Home Away' suite that you are booking). This also permitted room for modern HVAC, humidifying and water treatment equipment and to shore up the beams under the old home. After three years of toil and careful craftsmanship, Winterham was restored to its former glory and beyond. This is the third home that the Hadfields have placed on the national register, including their residence, Dykeland, nearby, built in three eras (1770, 1820 and 1860) and a pioneer home and cabin in Provo, Utah, the Johnson-Hansen home. Winterham has now become popular as a preferred wedding venue/B&B getaway.
