Detail Map: Sheppards, Curdsville, and New Store

Buckingham_Map-Southeast_de

Here’s the second of a series of detailed maps of Buckingham County.  This is the southeast corner of the county.  To the south is the Appomattox River and Prince Edward County.  To the east is Cumberland County.

This detail includes Sheppards, Curdsville, and New Store.  All will be mentioned in future posts.  This is the territory of Revolutionary War hero, Peter Francisco, and the once thriving resort, Buckingham Springs.

If you click on the map, a separate image will open and you can enlarge any area you are interested in.

Note: This map was created c. 1989 and, therefore, is not completely current; however, change comes slowly to Buckingham so it remains useful.

Key for the “Points of Interest” in green, roughly from north to south:

17: Governor McKinney’s Home (location only), 34: John Wayles Eppes Grave, 27: Millbrook (Eppes Plantation), 23: Hunting Tower – Judge Winston’s Home Site (location only), 8: Clifton (historic home).

    Below is a link to a most fascinating account of Millbrook Plantation and some of the people who lived there. Highly recommended reading.

      The story of the Buckingham Hemmings family and Millbrook Plantation is indeed fascinating. Thanks!
