Robert Tynes House, also known as Tynes Plantation, is a historic plantation home located near Smithfield, Isle of Wight County, Virginia. The house was built in 1750, and is a two-story, three bay, Georgian style brick dwelling with a gambrel roof. The interior features a center-passage single-pile plan. Also on the property are the contributing garden and well, smokehouse / frame shed, and kitchen foundation. In 1802, its owner Timothy Tynes granted manumission of his 81 slaves and the division of his 4,000 acre estate primarily to his slaves.[3]
