    This school is where Brown v.s. Board of Education began.

    Hodges Brown played football for Robert Moten High School, a segregated school in Farmville, Virginia. “In order to stay warm you had to get as close as you could to the stove,” he says. “And when it rained you needed an umbrella, you need an umbrella cause water was coming through the roof, you know.”

    Brown grew up during the Jim Crow years when blacks were segregated by law in all aspects of life, including education. “The school that the white kids went to they were in Farmville, and it was a fantastic school, they had a cafeteria, which Moten didn't have, they had a gymnasium which Moten didn't have.”

    One day, the students of Robert Moten School decided they’d had enough. “We had a big march, we met up at our school and we marched from our school all the way downtown,” Brown says. The NAACP supported the protest and filed a lawsuit against Prince Edward County in Virginia. That case and three similar ones ended up before the United States Supreme Court as Brown versus the Board of Education.

    Macados is one of the better places to eat in Farmville. The menu is very extensive, with so many choices it's hard to make a choice sometimes. You can choose from 50 or so sandwiches, eclectic appetizers, huge salads, great happy hour specials, and some wonderful desserts.

    Favorite Dish: The Big Daddy

    Try your hand at bowling at Main Street Lanes. With 30 lanes, a full service bar and grille, and a friendly staff, Main Street Lanes is a fun place to be.

    On Friday nights, the lights go out, the black lights come on, and the music goes up for Rock-N-Bowl.

    Dress Code: If you wear anything nicer than jeans, you may feel overdressed.
