Piney Grove

Piney Grove is a historic home located at Holdcroft, Charles City County, Virginia. The original section was built about 1800 as a 20 feet by 22 feet, one-story log corn crib. It was expanded to a 1 1/2-story log store about 1820. In 1853, two additions were built, and in the early 20th century, the two-story block was created which incorporated the two rooms of the 1853 addition. The house is a rare survival of log vernacular architecture in Tidewater Virginia and a unique survival of a log agricultural building that was later twice incorporated into a much larger frame structure.
