In the heart of Augusta County’s idyllic countryside, Long Glade Farm boasts an finely preserved antebellum complex, the main feature of which is a brick dwelling built in 1848-52 for William Howell. A traditional Valley I-house with an original ell, the house has a stretcher-bond facade and the typical molded brick cornice. The front porch and interior woodwork are countrified versions of Greek Revival details extracted from architectural pattern books. Early graining remains on the hall woodwork. Near the house are two original outbuildings, a brick meat house and a two-story brick servants’ house. An assortment of farm buildings, including a large late 19th-century bank barn complete the assemblage. In 1972 Long Glade was purchased by Georgia S. Vance a nationally recognized authority on dried flower arrangements. The farm’s extensive flower garden is Mrs. Vance’s creation.
