Anecdotal Information:
Interview with Carl & Joyce Manfield on July, 6, 2015: Carl and Joyce Manfield have lived in their home on Rivermont for thirty years. The house was used as parsonage for a Presbyterian church. The church sold it to Duvall Martin, who was a judge, and his wife Maude, who was the head nurse at Virginia Baptist Hospital. They had painted the woodwork in the basement green and red for Christmas parties. The owners after that made the house into apartments. Two sisters lived in the upstairs in apartments for sixteen years. Carl and Joyce let the sisters remain upstairs and have very fond memories of Helen Brown who was an English and Latin teacher. She would go to Atlantic City during the summers and was a fortune teller. The house has oak floors up and downstairs and air conditioning. The property also has a garage in the back of the house.
