2015 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN STEWARDSHIP

NORTON FAMILY FOR VALLEY VIEW
Cartersville, Bartow County

One of Georgia's best preserved antebellum brick homes, Valley View was constructed by James Caldwell Sproull, a successful planter from Abbeville, South Carolina. Originally a 2000-acre plantation, Valley View is now a 270-acre working farm owned by direct decedents of James Sproull. Currently under the stewardship of the Norton family, Valley View has been preserved to tell the history of the property and the Sproull family. The Norton Family is steadfast in its commitment to the preservation of Valley View and its contents, regularly organizes family workdays, and keeps detailed records of rehabilitation work at the home and grounds. It is this sense of responsibility for a unique historic site that compels us to give thanks to the Norton's continued commitment to preserving Valley View.
