"Taliaferro's Mount is located 6 miles north of Port Royl, Caroline County, Va. In 1969 Port Royal was the first town placed on the Virginia Landmarks Register and nominated to the National Register of Historic Places.Port Royal as chartered in 1744. Taliaferro's Mount is located on the north bank of Mount Creek near its mouth to the Rappahannock River. To get there go north on US#17 to the top of Mount Hill, take a right
on Rte#615, go about 3/4 mile, take another right on Rte$614, go to the end of the road. Take the dirt road to the left and after about half-mile you will see a large white frane house on the right. This is the old Taliaferro's Mount. It has had much face lifting but does incorporate the old house.
