Farm and Barn History Hours

Come inside the barn at Ivy Creek Natural Area. This was formerly the showpiece of the working farm known as River View Farm. It is also one of the reasons that River View Farm is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Enjoy the displays including natural history exhibits and farm equipment. Additionally, there are historical displays about the Carr/Greer family who built this barn and lived at River View Farm for over one hundred years.

As per County regulations, please wear a mask while inside the barn.

Be in the Know!

About Ivy Creek

Scenically shadowed by the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Ivy Creek Natural Area (ICNA) is a 219-acre preserve bordering the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir in Charlottesville, Virginia.

With seven miles of trails traversing a mix of upland woods, pine stands, fields, streams, and shoreline, ICNA is an ideal site to learn about the rich natural history characteristic of Central Virginia.
