Updyke Farm consists of 362 acres in mountainous Bland County and a house built circa 1910 for Junius Marcellus Updyke. Together the main house and associated outbuildings provide an outstanding example of early-20th century vernacular domestic and agricultural architecture in Southwest Virginia. The farm includes an unusual two-story smokehouse, and an intact collection of early-20th-century agricultural outbuildings as well as a family cemetery.
