Description

Structure date circa 1832. Thomas S. Galloway inherited nearly 1,000 acres of land on the Dan River after his father’s death in 1832. He named the plantation Mon-Vue, and soon constructed a fine two-story brick house on the property. He married Lucinda Chalmers and they raised a family of six children. Thomas resided at Mon-Vue the remainder of his life, dying there on March 10, 1879. He was buried in the family cemetery on the estate. Mon-Vue plantation passed out of the Gallaway family after the death of Thomas’ grandson, John M. “Boy” Gallaway, Jr. At one time, Mon-Vue was the world’s largest producer of flue-cured tobacco. The house burned once and was rebuilt. It burned again in 1993 and was not rebuilt. Located Off SR 2108 Riverside Circle on Dan River, Wentworth Township.
