Botetourt County has what's believed to be two of the few remaining structures of their kind in southwest Virginia: a modest cabin and a kitchen that are remnants of Greenfield's past as a plantation. These structures date back to the 1860s and have been documented by the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT) of the National Park Service in Natchitoches, LA!
Over the past few years, a committed team of volunteers, some of whom are descendants of the Greenfield Plantation, have been diligently undertaking the task of restoring these structures. As we celebrate Black History Month, we want to share a news story and award winning podcast from WDBJ7 that tells the story of Historic Greenfield. https://wdbj7.libsyn.com/black-history-here-at-home-the-historic-greenfield-structures
Want to get involved? The Historic Greenfield Advisory Preservation Council meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 3pm at the Botetourt County Administration Center at Greenfield. Learn more here: www.botetourtva.gov/historicgreenfield
