Fodor's Review

The colonial Georgian-style house General Cornwallis used as his headquarters in 1781 was built in 1771 on the foundations of a jail. After a fine, furnished restoration, this colonial gentleman's town house is now a museum that includes seven period gardens, including an orchard, a rose garden, and a kitchen garden, along with an 18th-century debtors prison.
