Notes
Survey number HABS VA-1340
Significance: The Ewing Livestock Market comprises a large, barn-like, wood frame building constructed in 1937, and a concrete-block wing built in 1960. The main section, which presently shelters numerous livestock pens, originally housed all the market's functions. The wing, built to meet the market's need for greater space, houses an auction arena and office. The market building, erected to serve the needs of a cooperative market organization made up of local farmers, was the first rural livestock market building in a large region, comprising southwest Virginia and adjacent areas of Tennessee and Kentucky, and is though to have inspired the creation of similar market organizations and buildings.
