Meadow Farm is a historic farm and estate that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.[1][3][4]

The estate belonged to Mosby Shepherd.

Meadow Farm Museum[edit]

The estate is now owned and operated by Henrico County as the Meadow Farm Museum. The 1860 period living history farmsite and museum presents programs and exhibits on the culture of the rural South. The buildings include the farmhouse, barn, doctor's office, blacksmith forge and kitchen.

The museum is featured in "Welcome to the Meadow Farm Museum", a 10-minute Henrico County TV film available for viewing online.[5]
