The agricultural history of this exceptionally fertile valley chronicles the development of tobacco cultivation for international export from the eighteenth through late nineteenth century, the transition to a thriving apple orchard industry from the 1880s through early 1940s, and the present mix of cattle farming and experimentation with viticulture and cider orchards.
  6. 6. C-a collection of eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and early twentieth-century century architecture representing a variety of vernacular and more formal styles.
