Nomini Hall was an original land grant awarded in 1729 to the famous Carter family, the largest land owners in the colony. The original Nomini Hall was an elegant square brick Georgian-style home built in 1729. The house was 3 stories high on 2,000 acres with a view of the Potomac River and the Nomini Creek dock. Robert III planted an allee of yellow poplar trees from the house to the road in the 1750s which are now considered the oldest in Virginia. The originial house tragically burned to the ground, a frame structure was rebuilt on the spot in 1850.
