Bound By The JamesTucked quietly within the Blue Ridge Mountains, sits +/- 580 acres, of which 525 acres are deeded. CSX Transportation makes up the remainder- over the course of 3 & 1/2 miles of railroad track runs through the property, with 50ft on either side of track- which adds flare to this astoundingly historic tract.''Bound by the James River,'' this peninsula farm has beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, including those of the George Washington National Forest and Apple Orchard Mountain, with The Appalachian Trail overlooking the farm. The Old Kanawah Canal also runs through this property. In 1785, George Washington proposed the construction of the Kanawha Canal. The Kanawha Canal was to be an open-water transport system to the West.
GreatSchools Ratings for Virginia are based on the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Grade reading, writing, math, science and history/social science results and the End-of-Course reading, writing, algebra I, algebra II, geometry, biology, chemistry, earth science, world geography, Virginia and United States history, world history I and world history II results. Grade 8 history/social science results were not included due to incomplete reporting by the state. GreatSchools compared the test results for each grade and subject across all Virginia schools and divided them into 1 through 10 ratings (10 is the best). Please note, private schools are not required to release test results, so ratings are available only for public schools. GreatSchools Ratings cannot be compared across states, because of differences in the states' standardized testing programs. Keep in mind that when comparing schools using GreatSchools Ratings it's important to factor in other information, including the quality of each school's teachers, the school culture, special programs, etc.
