The Gressitt House is a delightful gem with exciting possibilities for old home lovers. Located in the historic district of Urbanna, VA, which originally revolved around tobacco trade, the home is prominently perched above Virginia Street, beside the Old Tobacco Warehouse. The original 2-over-2 dwelling with 9-over-9 windows and basement, is believed to have been built in the 1740s (this date is not definitive). A 2-story addition was added in the 1880s and retains many original details. This home enjoys a splendid front porch graced by an ancient magnolia and gentle breezes off the creek down yonder. The Gressitt House is thought to have been the home of Urbanna's colonial harbormaster, and the point of departure for William Clark who spent a night here on his way to join Meriwether Lewis in the expedition to the Northwest Territories. Walk to shops, restaurants, and town marina at Upton's Point on Urbanna Creek.
