Vintage Homes’ Made In America House

May 22nd, 2012

The upcoming Homearama 2012 at Culpepper Landing made the news again this past weekend with Josh Brown’s article in the Virginian Pilot. T.E. Jones, owner and builder of Vintage Homes, describes the challenges in finding American made materials for one of Homearama’s featured homes, The Made In America House. Jones discusses how the building process has never been so painstaking which made him completely rethink how he puts together a home. Read the article

A Tidbit of Thanksgiving Trivia

November 23rd, 2010

Glencoe
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.
