About three miles southeast, on the north bank of the Rappahannock River, Bewdley was one of the most unusual houses in Virginia, with two rows of dormer windows. It was built by Major James Ball, cousin of Washington's mother, about 1750. The first steamboat on the river touched at its wharf. The house burned in 1917; only one chimney remains.
