Yet even after that remarkable find — which measured larger than a football field — the ancient property surrounding what was long known as Allen's Brick House was far from done coughing up subterranean surprises.

That's what happened in mid-May when Preservation Virginia restoration craftsman Mike Adams began work on a new handicapped parking spot located some 20 paces east of the house's mid-1800s addition.
