Such a beautiful estate! Wirtland is a great example of a rural Gothic Revival and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built in 1850. It is located on 112 acres in Oak Grove, Virginia. Originally built by William Wirt Jr., the son of former USA Attorney General William Wirt. It was constructed in the shape of a cross and built around a central chimney. The interior includes hardwood and marble floors, and plaster ceilings. Mr. Wirts died in 1898.
