Farmhouse Viewmont
Farmhouse Viewmont 1740 Carters Bridge, Va.
Title located on the top of the base.

The Viewmont Farmhouse of 1740 is located in Carters Bridge, Albemarle County, Virginia, and was built by a founding father of the county, Joshua Fry, in 1737. The original house in Virginia burnt down before 1800 and a new house was built on its foundation. That house was burnt down again in 1939 and was rebuilt for a third time in 1941 with all the same characteristics as the first two. The house went through many different owners between the years of 1737 and 1883 including a Virginia Governor at one point.
