CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA PROPERTY EST. 1834 In the 1730s, this bucolic 573-acre estate was home to Terrell’s Ordinary, a modest inn for westward travelers. Today, Boar’s Head is a quintessential Virginia resort offering a warm, intimate ambiance, exceptional service, and unparalleled Southern hospitality. The heart of the property is an 1834 water-powered gristmill, originally located along the Hardware River on the Bellair estate of Martin Dawson, Thomas Jefferson’s neighbor and financial adviser. The mill escaped destruction during the Civil War and continued to operate for 60 years after the war ended. It was reconstructed on its present site in 1965, and since then, almost $70 million has gone into renovation and expansion of this historic Inn. Today, the original mill houses the acclaimed Old Mill Room restaurant, Bistro 1834, and 41 guestrooms. Exhilarating hot air balloons embark right from the front lawn.
