description

Summary

This documentation was completed for a class at the University of Virginia & subsequently donated to the HABS collection.
Significance: The estate includes a main house, a claims house, a kitchen, a smokehouse, a cobbler's house and a caretaker's cottage. It also includes numerous barns, other outbuildings, and gardens. The main house, kitchen, smokehouse, and cobbler's house constitute a preserved nineteenth-century farm complex. The grouping of service buildings around the main house shows the hierarchical arrangement of farms of this era. The claim's house, also part of this grouping, is probably the oldest building on the site and was built around 1796.
