The undisturbed sites of three adjacent tobacco farmsteads form the Garret Woods complex, part of the assemblage of archaeological resources in the John H. Kerr Reservoir area. Complex #1, occupied from the early 1800s until purchased by the federal government in the 1940s, is composed of the sites of the Garrett house, a well, four tobacco barns, one shed, and two unidentified structures. Complex #2, dating from the late 1800s to the 1900s, has a large L-shaped domestic structure remnant and sites of various outbuildings and farm buildings. The third grouping, occupied from the late 1800s until the 1940s, and representative of a small-scale tobacco farm, preserves sites of a house, two tobacco barns, and fence lines. Also present is a family cemetery. Scientific investigation here could piece together a picture of regional agrarian culture spanning a century of time.
