Short Significance Description:
Significant under Criteria A by its association with the site of Lee's surrender to Grant and Criteria C by embodying the characteristics of a period of construction. The building which existed at the time of the Surrender was likely used as an office.
Long Significance Description:
Significant under Criteria A by virtue of its association with the site of the surrender of the Confederacy to the north, to end the Civil War. The one story frame building existed at the time of the Surrender and while it was likely an office, no evidence suggests that it was occupied by Woodson who owned a lot across the Stage Road. Significant under Criteria C by embodying the distinctive characteristics of a type, period, and method of construction. The buildings and resources at APCO constitute a holistic landscape typical of both a county government seat in Piedmont Virginia in the mid-19thC and of a farming community in the state.
