I am happy to be able to share with you that River View Farm has been formally recognized by the National Register of Historic Places.  The land was purchased by Hugh Carr in 1870 and remained in his family through 1970.  The Carrs and Greers were successful farmers, educators and leaders in their community.  Surviving structures such as this barn and the original farmhouse continue to mark the farm's presence.  The Ivy Creek Foundation has, since it's beginning, recognized that the story of River View Farm and the people who made it possible is a significant one for our community and have tried to highlight their stories through our educational programming, including school tours, barn openings and Ivy Talks.  We are thrilled that this recognition is now also happening at a national level.  For more information about River View Farm, please visit our website, our kiosk or take one of the audio tours available that highlight this story.
