Description: GLEBE HOUSE OF SOUTHWARK PARISH Nearby stands the glebe house of the formerly Anglican Southwark Parish that was built soon after 1724 . A glebe was a parcel of land owned by a colonial church and farmed to pay the ministers expenses . This glebe house was used as a parish rectory and is one in a rare surviving group in Virginia . The first to live here was the Reverend John Cargill , a leading colonial cleric . The disestablishment of the Anglican church resulted in the propertys sale into private ownership in 1802 . Exterior chimneys were added and the gable roof was rebuilt as a gambrel . The property was listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register in 1975 and the National Register of Historic Places in 1976 .
