Belle Grove

I just got an email from the Virginia Center for Architecture. They will be celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Virginia Society of the American Institute of Architects (VSAIA) in 2014. As part of the year-long recognition, the Center will be hosting an exhibition entitled “Virginia’s Favorite Architecture.”Β This exhibition will highlight the top 100 favorite structures in the Commonwealth of Virginia and will be selected through a general public vote.

Belle Grove Plantation at Port Conway

has been selected among the 250 structures that have been identified by Virginia architects as especially significant!

In early November, the Virginia Center for Architecture will launch a site for the general public to review the 250 structures and will give information on how to vote for your favorites! If we receive enough votes, we could be selected as one of the 100 Favorite Structures in the Commonwealth!


As we get closer to the launch, we will put out information on where to go and how to vote.

Please keep an eye out for this information

and help us be one of the 100 selected.
