The Weems-Botts House offers a fascinating history on Virginia's oldest chartered town and two of the more colorful personalities to have lived here: the Rev. Mason Locke Weems and attorney Benjamin Botts. Weems, biographer of George Washington, was the creator of the famous cherry tree myth. Educated as a cleric, Weems actually made the core of his living as a bookseller and author of almanacs, and initially used the museum building as a bookstore. By contrast, attorney Benjamin Botts used the building as his law office. Botts is best remembered as one of the lead lawyers who successfully defended Aaron Burr during his infamous treason and conspiracy trial.
