Glenmore was once a large dairy farm in Central Virginia which dates back to the Civil War. Dairy operations ceased in the 1980’s and since then, some of it has been developed into subdivisions and other parts of it have been sold in large parcels. Much of the undeveloped land of Glenmore is still being farmed today. My husband (aka Gator) and I recently purchased one of the parcels which contains the original home site (the original home burned down many years ago), as well as a home that was built in 1910 and was restored in the early 2000’s. One of the former owners of Glenmore still lives in the area and has been a great source of information about the history. I hope to record this history so it doesn’t get lost over the years.
I also have other goals for this blog. As we maintain and improve this beautiful old place, I’ll share our trials and tribulations. Our animals provide endless entertainment and we have some interesting hobbies that we’ve been involved with for years in addition to those we are just starting, so I am sure there will be a lot to talk about.
So let’s see how this goes and I look forward to chatting with you!
