A walk or drive along High and Beech streets, just north of Longwood University’s campus, offers a picturesque view of centuries-old homes – a peek into bygone eras.
Take The Whitfield Building for example. Located at 308 North Main Street, this building was constructed in the early 1860’s, this is the oldest storefront building still in its original form in Farmville. The building was designed from noted architect Asher Benjamin’s early 19th century books on architecture. Of interest is the Greek Key over the windows on the second floor.

The Longwood Center for the Visual Arts is the only museum of its kind, scope, and size in the area surrounding our home base, Prince Edward County. The commitment to improving the quality of life in the region by providing full access to the visual arts is the heart of our mission. At the LCVA, we believe there should be no barriers to exploration of the visual arts. Admission to the LCVA and its programs is – and always has been – free for everyone.
LCVA is the art museum of Longwood University. Located in downtown Farmville, LCVA serves as a physical, intellectual, and cultural bridge between the university and our community at large. Longwood University’s mission, “to transform capable men and women into citizen leaders, fully engaged in the world around them,” forms the foundation of our mission and values.
Packing a bag takes skill. To many people it can be a work of art. Utilizing space and being spot-on about what items to include can take years to perfect. Below are a few tricks of the trade to help you become a Master Packer!
Consider the weather and what kinds of activities you’ll be doing: Visit weather-related sites to check out how the weather will be at your destination. Ski trip? Pack thermal underwear, wool socks, ski clothes and ski goggles. Beach-bound? Pack a swimsuit, sandals, hat and sunglasses.
Buy travel-size containers for your toiletries: You can always drop into a local shop to restock if you run out. Seal up containers in airtight plastic bags to prevent contents from leaking into your suitcase.
Coordinate your wardrobe with pieces that mix and match: Choose 2-3 color schemes (neutrals are always a safe bet) so each item can work with more than one outfit. Dress in layers so you can adapt to changing temperature.
Call the hotel prior to leaving home to inquire about items that come with the room (hair dryer, iron, robe, etc.): Otherwise, pack travel-sized items. If you’re heading overseas, don’t forget to bring the right plug adapter.
Pack clothing using the “roll” technique: Lay two or three items on top of one another, smooth out and then roll them up like you would a sleeping bag. This saves space and helps prevent wrinkles. Always zip zippers and button buttons.
Organize your suitcase: Place your garments in the order in which you plan to wear the items. Wrap breakable items, like jewelry or glass, in socks and tuck inside the shoes in your luggage. Fill corners and edges with shoes and other cumbersome items. Top off with lighter items.
