Belmead On The James
After reading about Belmead on the James on National Geographic's site as one of the 11 most endangered US historic sites, my mother and I decided to pay it a visit. It was rather difficult to find, but worth the hunt and we were greeted upon arrival by two very friendly nuns. It was far too hot to do much exploration of the grounds, but we quite enjoyed the glimpse we did get. It's sad that this place and others like it are falling into disrepair and disappearing...
