Old Marster's Cedar Grove is the story of a Virginia Plantation. Originally published in 1957 by John Taylor Lewis, Jr., the second printing of 2006 contains an epilogue by James W. Kinnear. The story starts with the acquisition of the property in 1790, the building of the plantation house in 1838, and the devastating effect of the Civil War on the plantation and on the family. The plantation falls into hard times, is rescued by the original owner's great-grandson, is restored, only to fall into disrepair in the late 1990s. The epilogue recounts how it is rescued once more, how it is used today, and is now a beautiful showplace recently gifted to the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
