1829 Mount Fair Farm restoration Charlottesville, VA

I found the article that accompanies yesterday's guest cottage post. The History: The original residence at Mount Fair Farm in Charlottesville, Virginia, was constructed in 1829 as a two and half story Greek Revival home set on 200 acres in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The house stayed in the Brown family until 1930, when the first head of the School of Architecture at the University of Virginia, Edmund S. Campbell, moved in. The property remained relatively untouched in the decades that followed, other than the addition of a kitchen in the 1950s. Interested? Read more and see additional photos (before and after) HERE.
