A week ago, a few of us from my local photography group drove west to Culpeper for a photo walk. During the walk, we stopped for a visit at the Burgandine House, the oldest building still standing in Culpeper. I was shocked to learn from the two caretakers who invited us inside that they are not getting support from the local government to maintain this historic site. I hope they turn around and the place is saved.
In the last picture, the Burgandine’s caretakers are standing amidst some construction that is threatening the house.
Burgandine House was built around 1800. This article is the most thorough I could find about its history. Also visit The Burgandine House Facebook page and give them some love. Let’s show them we value history!
