Camden, Rappahannock River, Port Royal, Caroline County, VA
Significance: Camden is one of the most complete and best-preserved Italianate country houses in America. Except for the elaborate upper stage of the tower, which was removed after damage by military action in 1863, Camden appears substantially today as it does in architect Starkwether's drawings, preserved in the house. Much original furniture including parlor carpet and draperies remain in situ.
