Tobacco Farming in Virginia - A History & Heritage Worth Preserving

My great-grandfather, Robert M. Williams, was a God-fearing tobacco farmer in Crewe, Virginia (Southside). This is an important part of Virginia's rich history and these old structures are worth preserving - at least until someone's offended and they have to be torn down and their owners put in jail.
