The land that is now known as the Ivy Creek Natural Area was previously known as River View Farm. River View Farm is a rare surviving example of the Union Ridge/Hydraulic Mills community of African American farmers, pastors, craftspeople, and businessmen that flourished in the region beginning in the final quarter of the nineteenth century. In recognition of the contributions made to the local community by the Carr/Greer family who owned it, River View Farm is recognized on both the Virginia Landmark Registry of the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and the National Register of Historic Places. This tour will explore the lives of the Carr/Greer family and explore the historic buildings on the farm. The tour will start at the kiosk. This event is free and open to the public but we do ask that you preregister as spots are limited.
