1. Newmarket Marker
Inscription.  Newmarket stood on the Little River near Verdon in northern Hanover County until 1987, when to preserve it Robert W. Cabaniss moved it to this site. The seat of the Doswell family for whom the town of Doswell was named, the house is the sole survivor of a large plantation complex that once included a gristmill, tanyard, and cotton factory. James Doswell, a Revolutionary War veteran, probably built Newmarket in the late eighteenth century.
