McClung Farm Historic District

NRHP Reference Number


Far from modern intrusions, the scenic mountains and valleys of Highland County maintain, perhaps best, the serenity of 19th-century rural Virginia. The several components of the McClung Farm Historic District, situated along the Bullpasture River and Clover Creek, capture this image in a single scene. The historic homestead has remained in the same family since William McClung purchased the farm in 1838. The brick farmhouse, architecturally akin to contemporary dwellings in adjacent Augusta County, was built by McClung in 1844. Essentially unchanged, its interior preserves boldly detailed mantels and original graining. Nearby stands a collection of wood-frame farm buildings erected around the end of the 19th century. A short distance from the complex is the picturesque 1880s Clover Creek Presbyterian Church, built on land donated by the McClung family. Members of the family are buried in the church cemetery.
