Green Springs National Historic Landmark District is a 14,000 acre agricultural landscape. The rich soils of the Green Springs basin have sustained farming for over 270 years; human activity has been in relative harmony with the land, enhancing rather than detracting from it. Thirty-five homes and buildings are listed on the National Regisiter of Historic Places and represent a continuum of rural Virginia vernacular architecture. Over 8,000 acres are held in conservation/ preservation easements by the National Park Service, Virginia Department of Historic Resources and Historic Green Springs, Inc. Green Springs National Historic Landmark District is privately owned, includes no public facilities, but is visible from public highways. A brochure on the district is available at Maddox Store, at the corner of VA 613 and VA 640.
