VA-ND3 Newmarket

Marker text: NEWMARKET

Newmarket stood on the Little River near Vernon in northern Hanover County until 1987, when to preserve it Robert W. Cabaniss moved it to the site. The seat of the Doswell family for whom the town of Doswell was named, the house is the sole survivor of a large plantation complex that once included a gristmill, tanyard, and cotton factory. James Doswell, a Revolutionary War veteran, probably built Newmarket in the late eighteenth century.
