Wilkins Farm, a late 18th century farmstead west of Edinburg, is among the 12 historic sites recently added to the Virginia Landmarks Register. According to the Department of Historic Resources, the farm was owned and developed by three different German families and stretches back to 1776 as a single-room log dwelling. The Wilkins family occupied the farm from 1824 until 2003. The property was the boyhood home of Emanuel Wilkins, a Shenandoah Valley artist who practiced the fraktur tradition of stylized lettering and illuminated illustration developed by German immigrants in Pennsylvania.
