12NOON
1—Wednesday—History Around Us: Edgewood: The Sam and Carolyn Davis House. Sam and Carolyn Davis will present a talk on “Edgewood,” an imposing 1830s manor house, located on Old Stage Road in Stanleytown, Henry County, Virginia. First constructed for Major John Redd, Edgewood had ten previous owners before the Davis family acquired it in 2003. Major renovations were conducted in the 1950s under the famed architect W. Roy Wallace. The beautiful home, a Palladian three-part form, with flanking wings and six fireplaces, is made of Flemish bond brick. During the 19th century, Old Stage Road was known as the Great Wagon Road, used for travel from Salem, Virginia to Salem, North Carolina. Previously, in the mid-1700s, this road was used by the Moravians coming from Pennsylvania to establish their settlement in Bethabara, NC. Bring a bagged lunch, sit back, and learn through photographs and discussion about this unique home and the history that surrounds us. FREE. Noon.
