The old house on the grounds is the former 1852 Christiansburg Presbyterian Church Manse. The American and Flemish bond brickwork of the building is made with bricks fired on site. Although the house no longer houses the Museum collection, the grounds are still part of the Museum’s ‘footprint’. The NRV Master Gardeners maintain the grounds, and several of the museum events (such as Heritage Day) are held here.
