Ruins of Matildaville, VA

Took a trip out to Great Falls Park this afternoon to record the ruins of the former town of Matildaville (chartered in 1790). For more information on Matildaville, visit my friend Debbie Robison's awesome blog: Northern Virginia History Notes. She has a fabulous page on the Formation and Development of the Town of Matildaville, Virginia. All town lot information that I present here is referenced from her blog.
