Preservationists Study Greenway Court Plans

Clarke County officials are asking regional preservation groups to combine efforts and seek funding help for the rehabilitation of Greenway Court — the 18th century home of Lord Fairfax.

Historical society representatives from Winchester and Clarke, Frederick and Warren counties met Monday to discuss establishing a local chapter of the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities. The 119-year-old Richmond-based preservation organization’s first major preservation activity was the Jamestown settlement.

Kostelny, so the establishment of a local chapter of regional preservation groups may be a new organization model for APVA. Click here for the full Winchester Star article.
