Governor Ross Mansion and Plantation


Once the residence of Delaware Governor William Henry Harrison Ross, this spectacular house and its grounds chronicle the state’s pre-Civil War days when the slaveholding Ross family presided over one of southern Delaware’s most extensive agricultural enterprises.
