Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities, Montgomery County Branch Papers

 Collection
Identifier: Ms-1962-001
Abstract

The records largely document the recent history of Smithfield Plantation, ancestral home of the Preston family, focusing particularly on its restoration beginning in 1962. While much of the renovation occurred in the 1960s, many of the records detail other renovation projects done in the 1970s and 1980s. The collection also includes historical and other related documents dating from before the original Preston family's residence at Smithfield.

Dates: 1754 - 1996; Majority of material found within 1958 - 1983
