Beaverdam Creek Reservoir Park
Loudoun County, VA
Samaha worked directly with Nova Parks and retained Dutton + Associates to complete an intensive-level survey and evaluation at Beaverdam Creek Reservoir Park. A comprehensive literature review and background search was performed to gain an understanding of existing survey data pertaining to the farm complex property. The focus of the background search was to identify whether the property or any resources in the vicinity have been subject to previous cultural resource survey and what the previous recommendation of eligibility was for each. Using information derived from archives search and additional background research, a field survey was undertaken to document the physical condition of the former farm complex and the resources located there. Construction and alterations dates for the buildings and structures were established through a combination of archival search, property records data, map analysis, and field inspection.
