Railroad Houses

Building the infrastructure of a farm from scratch is always interesting and not without unexpected additions.

The C&O canal ran along the banks of the James river. In the 1800s, the canal was converted into a railroad. You can see the old locks and stone bridges along the tow path. Through a neighbor we found out that the railroad was replacing the old switching stations---so we aquired two houses - one that houses feed and seed and the other houses gas cans.
