Chatmoss was one of about 50 Hairston family
plantations in Virginia, North Carolina, and
Mississippi. This vast network encompassed tens
of thousands of acres and was worked by
thousands of enslaved African Americans. Alcey
and Samuel Harden Hairston received the 2,900-acre Chatmoss from Alcey's parents, Samuel
and Agnes Hairston, among the wealthiest
couples in Virginia. Samuel Harden Hairston
died in 1870 when a gallery at the Virginia
Capitol building collapsed. Fire consumed the
original Queen Anne-style plantation house on 4
July 1928. An English country-style house
replaced it but later burned. In 1958 Chatmoss
Country Club was established on the site.
