Bremo Historic District

Historical Significance

The Bremo Historic District includes the three estates created by General John Hartwell Cocke, a leading opponent of slavery. The focal point of the district is Upper Bremo, the Palladian-style mansion completed in 1820 as General Cocke's principle residence on the plantation. Still preserved in its west wing is the schoolroom where Cocke led classes for the enslaved population on the plantation.
