National Historians Set to Visit Historic Greenfield December 5-7

Four members from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training of the National Park Service in Natchitoches, LA will be at Historic Greenfield December 5-7 to document the Slave Quarters, Summer Kitchen, and Farm Managers House. We are very fortunate to have them come by, as they have a very extensive waiting list of other sites to document.

They will be taking 3D images of the buildings and mail the Historic Greenfield Preservation Advisory Council a flash drive when done. All images they take will become property of Botetourt County and will also become a part of an interactive website once they complete their project. 

Here is a website and video link to give you an idea of who they are and what they will be doing:

National Center for Preservation Technology & Training (U.S. National Park Service) (

Slave Cabin and Tenant Farmer Documentation Project - YouTube

One of the four people coming is an oral historian, and that person would like to interview descendants of the enslaved who lived and worked at Greenfield before the Civil War and tenant farmers who stayed and worked in the area for many years afterwards. Please help us spread the word about this upcoming project and help us locate people to interview.

We would also like to invite you and your associates to attend an open meeting of the Historic Greenfield Preservation Advisory Council of Botetourt County on Tuesday December 6 at 3:00 pm in the large auditorium. There you will get to meet the four documentarians, hear what they have to say, and show a video produced and directed by Ian and Danny Kyle about the preservation site.

The address for this meeting is:

Botetourt County Administration
57 S. Center Drive, Daleville, VA  24083

If you can attend this meeting, or if you know of anyone who would like to share their stories and memories of those who were enslaved and/or tenant farmers at Greenfield, please send an email to Wendy Warren at [email protected] or call/text her cell at (540) 589-8681.

If you would be interested in observing the documentarians working on site, please also let Wendy know. We are still uncertain of the many details about their visit to Historic Greenfield, but we will provide you more information about their visit upon special request.
