Ingles Farm

farming tools at old cabin on Mary Draper Ingles farm in Virginia

Ingles Farm

These old farming tools were shot at a very interesting gem of a place in Radford, Virginia known as Ingles Farm.  Ingles Farm is a working farm that was originally settled in the 1750s by William and Mary Draper Ingles.  It has great historical significance going back to the days of westward expansion, and is, to this day, operated and preserved by family descendents.  The story of Mary Draper Ingles is one of true bravery and incomprehensible trauma and strength.  A visit to “cabin days” at Ingles Farm is very enlightening, to say the least.
