In 1974, Meadow Farm was added to the Virginia Landmark Register and the National Register of Historic Places. Below shows Elizabeth Adam Crump and County officials meeting together in 1975 when she donated the Meadow Farm farmhouse and property to the County of Henrico in memory of her late husband, Sheppard Crump; she is seen below with County officials

Meadow Farm also features farm animals who enhance the experience at this living historical site.
