Brumback Family

Col. Bowman died after the Civil War and left his property to his son, George H. Bowman, who sold it to Andrew J. Brumback in 1888. Brumback added numerous outbuildings to the farm, including a barn and utility shed (built in 1891), which are still standing. A rear kitchen wing was added to the house that same year.

Long Meadow is still being farmed by decedents of AJ Brumback. The Commonwealth of Virginia recognizes families that have owned and operated their farms for at least 100 consecutive years. The family is honored to have their land distinguished as a Century Farm.
