Little Plymouth was built, before the American Revolution by a New Englander with the last name of Williams, hence the name Little Plymouth. He built his new Virginia home on on land purchased from the estate of John Robinson, who was a former Delegate and Speaker Of The Virginia House Of Burgesses from 1738-1766.
Williams, is the first known owner and builder of the actual house itself. It is sited off of The Trail (Rt. 14) in a manner typical of a rural house in New England. Williams built a store next to the house which he operated for more than forty years. In 1820, he sold Little Plymouth and returned to New England, leaving his legacy to remain at Little Plymouth.
