The Dunnington Mansion in Farmville, Virginia, had humble beginnings as a brick farmhouse. In 1897, the house was enlarged by the Dunnington Family into the sprawling and regal mansion it is today. Unfortunately, the property isn’t currently receiving the love and care it did under its original owners. The property sits decaying in the middle of a high-end golf course that has sprung up around the land parcel.

At some time, the Dunnington Mansion will hopefully receive a well-deserved restoration and be open to the public as a beautiful example of its architecture. But, until then, the property gets more damaged each day, soaking in the elements and creaking towards its demise while golfers swing their clubs carefree across the course just steps away.
