BURWELLS LANDING (UNDER CONTRACT) is a high end Kingsmill sub-division that was opened in 1993 and is essentially completed. There are 36 properties. The subdivision is named for Lewis Burwell, who built a large plantation on the James River in the early 18th century. The main Burwell house was destroyed by fire. The two brick outbuildings still stand and are visible from lots 34, 35 and 36. One of these buildings was a slave quarter, and is probably the only brick slave quarter in America that remains from the slave period.
