Blandy Experimental Farm, Boyce Virginia

Before 1904 (and the addition as seen here in red brick) this was the slave quarters for a nearby farm. In 1904 Mr. Graham F. Blandy bought it and used it as a summer home. He bequeathed it and 712 acres to the University of Virgina to be used to study modern farming methods. This building now houses interns, visiting scientists and staff.
