Built in 1815 by Fredericksburg magistrate and merchant, Daniel Grinnan, Presqu’Isle was originally a 16,000-acre grain plantation. The property also served as headquarters for Union General Emory Upton and approximately 15,000 cavalrymen during the winter encampment of 1863/64. Today 20 of Presqu’Isle’s original 16,000 acres, including the core of the c.1815 plantation, are open to the public as a historic park.
