Welcome to the place where history is made.
Fireflies dancing in the moonlight. The gentle hum of cicadas in the warm summer breeze. Magnolias blooming in the distance.
From the very start, our crepe myrtle lined driveway welcomes you. You realize immediately that you have reached an exceptional place. This quintessential southern plantation will quickly carry you and your guests to an era when life moved more slowly, the music was romantic, and friends stayed late into the night.
Cumberland Plantation, founded in the 1660’s, is the epitome of southern hospitality and charm. Built on 3200 verdant acres in New Kent County, Virginia, Cumberland is only thirty-minutes from Richmond or Williamsburg.
Today’s convenient and superbly managed event and tomorrow’s lasting memories start at Cumberland Plantation.
Fantastic Festival at Cumberland Plantation, Thanks to Mr. Poindexter who has done a beautiful job constructing this Civil War era Estate with class and beauty.
The property was pristine with the gardens in bloom and everything was absolutely beautiful! Our guests were mesmerized with the grounds and stunning views the entire evening. To this day, guests are still talking about this being the most beautiful wedding they have ever attended and by far the most magnificent venue!
