Bedford County, Virginia

Locust Level was built by Henry Buford, one of six sons of
John and Judith Early Beauford.  A most remarkable thing to remember
about John and Judith is that all six of their sons fought in the
Revolutionary War.  All but one survived.

The brick house on the left was built by Henry's son Paschal.  The house that is now being used
as an Antique Shop was the original home built by Henry.

From the 1924 Buford Families in America Book by Mrs. Mildred Buford Minter she states
that there was a large kitchen located farther down the hill from the Dinning Room which had
a Veranda that circled the dinning room.  Further on down the hill were the cabins for the servants.
Near the cabins was the "Spring House" with it's continuous stream of crystal clear water.

As you can see, the Dinning Room and Cook House are gone.  The Servants cabins are also missing. 
There is a small wooden structure (out of site) that was the Spring House.
