 How often have you wished you had the resources to return an old structure to its past glory? Working together with the Floyd County Historical Preservation Trust, you can return three irreplaceable Floyd County properties to public use.  All are listed in the Virginia Landmarks Register as well as the National Register of Historic Places; all have much more to tell about the visionary people who have chosen Floyd County as their home. Follow us on Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/Floyd-County-Historical-Preservation-Trust-120188004719440/ .



The heart of the George Phlegar Family Homestead is an early 1800s log structure. Its additions offer clues to the cultural and architectural trends of the past two centuries in southwestern Virginia.   The roof and exterior were painted in 2015.   Your donations will fund porch renovations and interior work. 





Oxford Academy dates to 1901. Built by the Rev. and Mrs. John Kellogg Harris, this private coeducational school offered classical college prep courses in a time when seventh grade was the highest schooling available for most.  Exterior restoration and electrical upgrades were completed in 2014.  Your donations will go to completing interior floor and wall repairs.





Floyd County’s first hospital, the Ridgemont
, was home to the region’s first X-ray machine. Built in 1914, this building at 217 North Locust Street has been described as a “one of a kind Victorian Vernacular."   It is open to the public as the museum of the Floyd County Historical Society http://www.floydhistoricalsociety.org.  Your donations will help maintain and pay for this property. 





How many times have you grieved the unexpected demolition of a significant building in your community?  We offer you a way to join other community supporters in protecting three of our significant landmarks with the vision that they will remain grace points for Floyd County.
