From Wikipedia:

Slusser-Ryan Farm
The Slusser-Ryan Farm is a historic farm at 2028 Mount Tabor Road in rural Montgomery County, Virginia, about 4 miles (6.4 km) northeast of Blacksburg. The main farm complex includes a house whose core elements are log structures built beginning in 1855, and later enlarged with frame structures. It has a variety of well-preserved exterior and interior 19th-century finishes that are stylistically eclectic. Outbuildings include a 19th-century pumphouse and privy, and there is a small 19th-century coal mine on the property. The latter was probably used by the farm's owners for local use.The farm was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2017. (read more...)
