(This amendment provides a general fund grant of $28,371 each year to the Paxton House Historical Society for the operations and maintenance of Paxton House, a historic structure listed on both the National and Virginia Registers of Historic Landmarks. Originally built in 1831, the home was once owned by Brigadier General Elisha "Bull" Paxton, a member of the Stonewall Brigade, who died at the Battle of Chancellorsville in 1863. The Paxton House and surrounding property is now owned by the City of Buena Vista and serves as a camping and recreational area.)
