Berry Hill Plantation, also known simply as Berry Hill, is located in Halifax County, Virginia, USA, near South Boston. With some 3,600 acres (1,500 ha), It was one of the largest plantations to ever exist in Virginia.
The plantation was originally owned by Isaac Coles, and began using black slaves in 1803. In 1814 and 1841, the plantation changed owners, finally ending up under the control of James Coles Bruce in 1832. Bruce built several additional structures on the land, including a temple-like Greek revival mansion, and stone slave quarters, which remain today. The plantation also holds one of the largest slave cemeteries in Virginia, holding the graves of more than two hundred slaves.
