For nearly 200 years, the old Cabell home "Union Hill" remained in the Cabell family. It was built in 1775 as the American Revolution erupted, by Col. William Cabell, Sr. and his wife Margaret Jordan Cabell. The site overlooking the James River in what is now Nelson County, was part of an original 4800 patent to Col. William's father in 1739. Mayo Cabell (1800- 1869) occupied the house longer than any other Cabell, and like his grandfather (Col. William Cabell, Sr.), he kept extensive diaries.

From page 6: Every beam and board was cut and shaped from the heart of oak, pine, poplar and walnut trees on the property. Bricks were fired in his local kiln. Every nail and spike was forged by hand.
