Powell's Tavern is a historic inn and tavern located at Manakin, Goochland County, Virginia. The earliest section was built about 1808, with additions made by 1815 and 1820. It is a two-story, "H"-shaped brick and frame building. The original section is a two-story frame block with a gable roof and two low one-story wings with shed roofs. It is connected to the later two-story, five-bay brick section by a two-story hyphen added in 1958.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]
