Virginia is recognizing the Shenandoah Valley farmhouse where Grandma Moses lived briefly with her family long before she gained fame for her folk-art painting.

Virginia's Department of Historic Resources approved Moses' brick farmhouse in Mount Airy for a place on the Virginia Landmarks Register, a list of his historic properties and places. It was among 17 historic sites added to the register.

Anna Mary Robinson Moses, her husband Thomas and their children lived in the 1850s house in 1901 and 1902. They lived in the Staunton area from 1887 until 1905, when they returned to upstate New York to farm.

Moses died in 1961 in Hoosick Falls, N.Y. She was 101.
