Belle Grove Plantation is located in the northern Shenandoah Valley south of Middletown, Virginia. Among its authentic structures is the 1797 Manor House built by Major Isaac Hite and his wife Nelly Madison Hite, sister of President James Madison. Major Hite, grandson of Shenandoah Valley Pioneer Jost Hite, expanded his original 483 acres to a prosperous 7,500 acre plantation, growing wheat, raising cattle and Merino sheep, and operating a large distillery and several mills. The property continues to be a working farm today, which inspires Belle Grove to support Virginia artisans and agriculture in its special events and in its Museum Shop products. In addition to these products, the Museum Shop carries books and items related to Belle Grove’s history including as the site of the Civil War Battle of Cedar Creek, which occurred on the property in October 1864. Please visit for further information. Belle Grove is a partner in Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park, a historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and site of the Garden Club of Virginia.
