A Tidbit of Thanksgiving Trivia

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

Historic Glencoe was built in 1841 by George Thomas Wallace, along the Dismal Swamp Canal in close proximity to the Northwest Canal Locks. Wallace’s property was located near the North Carolina border in the area generally known as Wallacetown. Tragically, Glencoe was consumed by fire in 1979 on Thanksgiving Day. Although it was rebuilt, it was never restored to it’s original grandeur. The house stood until only a few years ago.

Drummond Inn and more neighbors!

Monday, February 15th, 2010

We’ve already moved three new families in since the first of the year.  At the rate we are going our neighborhood should double in families in short order! Our builders and developers are bringing on some new floor plans and designs.  We really have something for everyone. Doreen and I are having so much fun watching the neighborhood grow and we are as excited as the residents to see the progress with all the new homes going up. Soon the apartment buildings will be underway. This complex will be great for those who choose to rent. The apartments will have a club house and pool as well. The design is in keeping with the neighborhood and very pleasing to the eye.

I can hardly wait to see the Drummond Inn once it’s built with the marina for boats using the inter coastal waterway. Check out this video I found on You Tube.

Hope you enjoy!

Edgar Allen Poe, Dismal Swamp and a Neighborhood that’s anything but Dismal

Monday, January 25th, 2010

Just a few days ago, January 19, would have been Edgar Allen Poes’, 201st birthday. Born in Boston, MA, after the death of both of his parents, he moved with foster parents to Richmond, VA.  Though he had a short life (dying at the age of 40), he left behind a legacy of writing. He is credited with starting the Detective / mystery writing genre.  The poem he is most famous for The Raven, is said to have been penned after a visit to the Dismal Swamp.  Along with Longfellow and Harriet Beecher Stowe, he is one of the many writers to have been inspired by the mystery of the Dismal Swamp.

When it’s a bit foggy outside and at night with the gases coming out of the swamp causing mysterious light, it is easy to see the inspiration. Though the swamp be referred to as Dismal, not so this wonderful neighborhood bordered by the swamp and the inter coastal waterway.

I say that the neighborhood is anything but Dismal… based on the number of visitors coming in to check out our neighborhood. We will be adding two families to the neighborhood this coming week.  The real estate market is down in many parts of the country, for Doreen and I it seems not so in our neck of the woods!   One visitor this weekend pointed out the number of homes he saw being built and how reassuring that was.

It’s music to our ears to pull in and hear the hammers going.  It is wonderful to see so much activity going on in the neighborhood. I watched today as one of the neighbors mowed his lawn while the children played on their bikes.  Folks out walking their dogs and families out exploring the neighborhood, just as the vision of a traditional neighborhood development theme calls for.  I smiled as I locked the model home at the end of the day.

We wrote another contract today for a family moving back to Chesapeake from a neighboring city.  It’s a privilege to help bring folks home to Culpepper Landing.
