Sydnor Log CabinSponsored by Literacy InterActives, Inc., efforts are underway to rehabilitate and preserve the Patrick Robert Sydnor pre-Civil War log cabin site as a regional public center in Mecklenburg County, Virginia. A primary theme of the project focuses on bridging communities through a variety of approaches that reach all individuals in Mecklenburg County and beyond—wherever they are, using their talents, skills and resources.
