2016: Looking Ahead

Late in 2015 and into 2016, restoration efforts will step up to take care of damage from 200 plus years of weather, primarily in the plaster and the repairs, including cement patches, that have been made over the years. Due to the generosity of Cindy Dauses, this work can progress.
In addition, archaeological testing for features identified on the NPS plan of the mansion compound are ongoing, designed to field locate these and to determine their state of preservation.
In 2014 AMC Network filmed a segment of their TV series "TURN", at Kittiewan Plantation. The grounds and structures of Kittiewan were converted into sets to depict actions during the Revolutionary War time period. The series premiered Spring, 2014 on the AMC Network.
