A Farm that’s Long Gone

Claven Lane, Middletown,  VA

This photo came up in my Facebook memories from this date in 2016. The buildings had deteriorated and would be removed by the Park Service. 

The old farm is now part of Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park. A Civil War battle raged across this land in 1864. 


  1. History....I was afraid you were going to say it was now a housing development.

  2. Love the view of the old farm. Take care, have a great day!

  3. Glad you found it to show us how it used to be.

  4. I wonder if there were farm buildings there during the battles.

    1. No record of them on this section of the battlefield.
