      The tobacco factory for making plug tobacco, owned an operation by Christopher Lawson Carter (1834-1901), was the principal industry of the community. Mr. Davis recalled that there had been a racetrack "beyond Piney Mountain" owned by Owen Adkins before the Civil War. He said that plug tobacco was hauled to Pennsylvania from this area, and the wagons returned loaded with salt. The Davis family has been located here since 1790, and Col. Christopher Davis, great-uncle of Mr. Davis, was in the Civil War.
      Museville was a post office from 1857 onward (Va. Magazine of History & Biography). Before the name of Museville was used, the post office was called Oak Shop (1851-57). This name may have originated from the prominent Oakes family.
      The name Museville obviously was adapted from the Muse family name.
      Guides for this tour, Miss Carter and Mrs. Minter, pointed out the old sites during a drive through the village of Museville. Here was the old field school taught by Miss Effie Carter, who later moved to Gretna with her sisters Miss Ida and Mrs. J.S. Adams.
      "Miss Effie" left an indelible and endearing memory with many hundreds there and in Gretna, where she taught many years. And there was the site of the tobacco plug factory of Christopher Lawson Carter, their father, and grandfather.
      Carter owned much property here and in the Penhook area. It was said that when almost any parcel of land in the area was mentioned "he owned it, had owned it or would own it." He was a successful merchant, manufacturer and real estate operator. A son of Jesse Carter of "Oakland" near Chatham, he was a cousin of the Carters of "Shirley" on the James and of Gen. Robert E. Lee. He married Dorothy Starn Muse in 1862

      "The Early Homes of Chatham" by Maud Carter Clement Oakland, A few miles south of Chatham on the Danville highway stands Oakland, a white frame house with four massive pillars supporting the entrance porch. A grove of lofty oaks still surrounds the house,from which it received its name. In former days there strolled in the grove those birds of gorgeous plumage, the pea fowls, with their brilliant hues and raucous cries. They were often seen on old plantation lawns, giving a touch of European splendor to the peaceful southern scene.
      At the close of the Revolutionary War Jesse Carter of Corotoman, Lancaster County, Virginia moved to Pittsylvania seeking to escape the malaria of Eastern Virginia. He purchased of John Burton of Charlotte County, for 4,500 pounds, 1,300 acres lying on both sides of Banister River, where he made his home on one of the main highways leading north and south.
      Old homes, especially old country houses, have characters of their own and this is true of Oakland with its unusual design and welcoming atmosphere. There are two very large reception rooms across the front of the house, each with a fan-lighted door opening onto the front porch. The large fireplaces of the two rooms have tall handsome mantels of Adams influence. In the dining room a bay of windows looks out over the grove, while the small study overlooks the garden to the rear. There are two halls and two stairways leading to the many bedrooms above. It is a good house in which to dream, when summer's heat lies over the land ripening the tobaccos in the field.
      Colonel Jesse C. Carter, best known of the early owners, was a man of jovial genial nature, with a wide circle of friends. He married Miss Lucy Neale, who was delicate without being ill, and shrank from facing life with its problems and responsibilities. So she took refuge in her bed, from which she ably directed her household.
      Colonel Carter, like his neighbors, grew fine tobacco, for Oakland lay in a section which was famed for its fragrant silky leaf. These planters were grounded in their fertile soil, and much knowledge in tobacco growing, and were well versed in its varieties, qualities, and best methods of curing.
      One autumn Colonel Carter returned, from looking after the sale of his tobacco in Lynchburg, with a complete new outfit of clothes. When his wife remarked upon his purchases, he replied with teasing good humor, "Well, my dear, you are never very well. Since it is not good for a man to be alone, I decided to be prepared for any occasion."
      "I'll have you to know, Colonel Carter," exclaimed his wife with some asperity. "I will out-live You!" And so she did for many a year.
      Three daughters were born to Colonel and Mrs. Carter. Celeste, the oldest, married Dr. John Hutchings, a young physician of the neighborhood; Nilla, lovely and merry-hearted, was her father's constant companion; while Mary, the youngest, gentle and shy, was her mother's shadow.
      When one of the deadly epidemics of diphtheria swept through the county, Nilla suffered a severe attack. She seemingly made a safe recovery to the great joy of the family. In his delight, her father brought from Lynchburg a lovely new dance frock for her to wear to a ball which was to be held in Chatham on July the 4th, 1851.
      When the eventful evening arrived, Nilla finished dressing and sent the maid down to tell her father she would be down presently. He was to be her proud escort, and the carriage waited at the door. When she did not come, the maid was sent back for her; but though still in front of her dressing table, Nilla was lying peacefully still, with her lovely head upon her outstretched arms. It was thought that her heart had succumbed to the exertion of dressing.
