Southern Albemarle Rural Historic District
Bounded by the James River to the south and the Rivanna River to the north, this nationally significant district encompasses 83,627 acres. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007, it includes buildings influenced by Jefferson’s Classical Revival ideals. The beauty of the Piedmont landscape is revealed in the panoramic vistas, farmlands, and vineyards. The district reflects the architectural and cultural influences of former residents Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe. The landscape remains predominantly agricultural with large farm complexes, historic villages, and an early transportation network of roads and waterways.

The huge historic district covers 836,270 acres with 1284 supporting buildings, 486 structures, and 3 objects per the application. Roughly bounded by Rivanna R., VA 20, Green Mt., James R., Blenheim, Jefferson Mill Rolling & Milton Rds. & Monroe Pkwy , Charlottesville. Guess didn't want to do all of the individual applications for government funding.
