a Great Historic Preservation Project
Caserta Estate – Eastville Virginia demonstrates the resourceful use of two other structures to create a single historic property is innovative and allows for the successful reuse of what had been deteriorating property. Both structures used to create Caserta Estate were in the final stages of deterioration and would have been lost completely.
