A state road work camp located in the vicinity of this site housed 199 German prisoners of war from July to November 1945. It was one of seven work camps in the commonwealth of Virginia. Prisoners worked on local farms to alleviate the labor shortage associated with the war. On November 16, 1945, following the end of the war, all work camps were closed and the prisoners were sent to Camp Shanks, New York, before eventually returning to Germany.
