Edgewood is a historic farm complex located at Wingina, Nelson County, Virginia. Structures located on the 65-acre (260,000 m2) property document its evolution as a plantation and farm since the late-18th century. It includes the main house ruins, a house built about 1790 and destroyed by fire in 1955; the circa 1820 Tucker Cottage; an 18th-century dovecote, dairy, and smokehouse; an 1828 icehouse; an early 19th-century corncrib; and a mid-19th-century barn or granary. Also on the property are a circa 1940’s tenant house (now a woodworking shop) and machine shed, the Cabell family cemetery, and an original well. The structures are all located along the gravel driveway.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.[1]
