HH Hunt starts construction of detached and town homes at White Hall
The original White Hall Tavern was built in 1805 by William Geddy, who was an upper middle class planter and blacksmith. He built the home for his son (james Geddy) who was a silversmith, and the purpose of the home was to represent “the improving quality of housing for all Virginians during the early Republican period.” Tax records have indicated that because William Geddy was a wealthy planter, he most likely possessed a number of adult slaves as well.
During the mid-1800s in the midst of the United States Civil War, the plantation home served as a site crucial to the Confederate Army. Due to its convenient location within a somewhat close proximity to Richmond, the capital of the Confederacy, it was a site that provided important intelligence gathering and distribution of information pertinent to the South’s advancement in the war.
The 200 acres of surrounding land had been in the family since the 1760’s. The United States Department of the Interior declared it a national historical landmark in 2007.
