Unity Days Event: Visit Historic River View Farm at Ivy Creek Natural area

  • Date: 08/03/2019 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Location: River View Farm
Visit River View Farm at Ivy Creek Natural area and tour the barn that was built in the 1930’s by Conly Greer, the first African American agricultural agent in Albemarle County and husband of Mary Carr, a teacher and principal of Albemarle Training School, for whom Greer Elementary School is named. Mary Carr Greer’s father, Hugh Carr, bought the land to start his farm only five years after he was emancipated in 1865. River View Farm remained in the family for a century, and visitors coming to the barn may learn about the story of this prominent and influential family and the African American neighborhood in which they lived.
