John Tyler's Sherwood Forest Plantation Photos

John Tyler's Sherwood Forest Plantation along the James River in Virginia was a linear expansion of buildings (built 1660 to 1845) so that it stands even today as the longest wooden house in America (300 ft). Tyler served as tenth president 1841-1845 & lived from 1782 to 1862. William Henry Harrison, the President who Tyler succeeded, had also owned Sherwood Forest Plantation prior to Tyler & before he moved to the neighboring Berkeley Plantation. While open to the public, Sherwood Forest is still occupied by Tyler's descendents.
