Built circa 1845 for its original owner, Cyrus Rhodes, a prosperous farmer, Long Meadow is a Greek Revival house in Rockingham County. The farm is located in a meadow within view of Massanutten Mountain. The two-story brick house, with an English basement, has retained its original form with no major alterations. A frame bank barn was constructed, circa 1866, after the original barn was torched in 1864 during the Civil War and the “Great Burning” of the Shenandoah Valley. A family graveyard, located behind the house, contains fifteen graves from 1864 through 1902, including those of Cyrus Rhodes and his family. Originally consisting of 1,000 acres, Long Meadow now covers 41 pastoral acres, with views of the surrounding mountains.
