Summary

Significance: This building, constructed c. 1834-1835, is part of a village complex of workers' houses of which this was probably the store. The complex was built for workers in the many flour and cotton mills which were located 500 feet north along Appomattox River. This building is interesting since its form is a derivation of similar forms which were used in Colonial houses in Tidewater Virginia.
