Neve Hall is a former home and Episcopalian Church on U.S. Route 29 southwest of Charlottesville. It is the future home of Potter's Craft Cider. The building will be renovated through $1.56 million in private investment as well as $100,000 in state and local funding. [1]

At just over 14 acres, the Neve Hall site is southwest of the 29/64 highway interchange - a short distance from the once prospective 200+ acre Deschutes brewery and sampling center. [2]


Neve Hall, which consisted of a stone manse and chapel, was name in honor of the Reverend Frederick W. Neve (1855-1948), an Episcopal clergyman and missionary who established missions, schools, and churches throughout the Blue Ridge and Albemarle County’s isolated Ragged Mountains during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. “The church facilities that he helped establish - often with the aid of his close friend Nancy Witcher Langhorne (Lady Astor) and her family, changed the lives of thousands of people and his legend lives on to this day”. Source: Neve: Virginia's Thousandfold Man; Author Frances Scruby; Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2016; The complex was designed by Eugene Bradbury and built in 1923 and 1924. (Cornerstone with Architect's initials)

After the Revolutionary War (April 19, 1775 – September 3, 1783), Episcopalians referred to the ministers’ residence as rectories and manses

The building was designed by Eugene Bradbury. [3]
