Green Springs National Historic Landmark District


Located on 14,000 acres, Green Springs National Historic Landmark District is part of the western piedmont of central Virginia. It is a natural basin caused by erosion of a volcanic intrusion resulting in particularly fertile soil, which has sustained grassland farming for over 270 years. On this land stands homes which represent a continuum of rural Virginia vernacular architecture, respectful of location and scene, preserved virtually unaltered from its original context.

All land in the district is privately owned, and therefore there are no publicly accessible activities. The land and buildings can be see astride US 15 in Louisa County.
