The county has issued a request for proposals for "adaptive reuse" of the historic Reeves Farmhouse.
"The farmhouse, which overlooks Bluemont Park, resides in a scenic setting and can be restored for a new purpose while preserving its historic value. The local historic designation of the farmhouse by Arlington County has ensured that it will be preserved, but finding an appropriate adaptive reuse is the next step to keeping the structure usable for future generations," a release states.
Currently the farmhouse and grounds surrounding it are used for educational purposes, and the Reevesland Learning Center Steering Committee was hoping to make that permanent. At the county board meeting in July, the board opted to find other means of supporting the farm. Estimates put the renovations at about $1.1 million. The county is hoping to find a partner in the renovation.
Proposals for the RFP are due on Monday, Sept. 24.
