Founded in 1798, Buckland’s history and development are directly tied to the history of commerce, industry and roads in the years immediately following the  American Revolution through the Civil War

This eleven-minute documentary recounts Buckland’s pre-history, founding, development as a manufacturing center, leadership in early turnpike road-building, Civil War experience, and today’s preservation focus. Enabled by a grant from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Buckland Preservation Society is grateful for this support and to all who participated in its production.
