Small house and barn

Green Springs Historic District - Louisa County, Virginia

"Green Springs' collection of rural-type buildings is important not only on an individual structure basis, but as a group in a related historic, social and scenic context. Unlike so may other areas of Virginia, Green Springs never suffered depression or serious war damage. As a result, its structures have always been well-maintained, rarely needing major restoration or repair. The rolling farmlands, as well, have been continuously cultivated and kept up, preserving a neat, pastoral setting for the buildings. The neighborhood thus survives as a uniquely distinct rural district containing outstanding examples of architecture preserved in their original context. Green Springs is a compact and gently civilized countryside where the land has been enhanced rather than despoiled by the presence of man."

  1. When you see something like this you have to stop and shoot.
