Amherst County Cost Share Survey by HistoryTech, LLC

The Amherst County Historic Resources Survey was funded by the County of Amherst and the Virginia Department of Historic Resources (DHR) and was administered jointly by DHR and Sweet Briar College’s Tusculum Institute. The survey was undertaken by HistoryTech (formerly The Antiquaries), a preservation planning firm based in Lynchburg, with assistance from Landmark Preservation Associates of Lexington. The main objective of the survey was to broaden the range of historic resources recorded in DHR’s database by documenting 275 mostly previously unidentified resources. The survey resulted in the documentation of a total 292 resources, primarily houses and farm complexes but also mills, stores, churches, and other building types. Survey was conducted in areas of the county outside National Forest lands, comprising approximately 75% of the county’s 475 square miles. Digital and hard-copy survey files were produced for DHR and the locality and two potential historic districts—Sandidges and Pedlar Mills—were proposed as eligible for listing in the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places. Copies of the final Survey Report (146 pages) will be donated to the Amherst County Public Library and the Amherst County Museum and Historical Society. In addition, the ACMHS will receive a complete set of survey files for its archives so that the data can be easily accessed by the public.
