Beech Grove
Nelson County, VA

Over the weekend Nelson County lost one of the kindest and most sincere people I have ever met. Robert Mansfield of Beech Grove passed away on Saturday. You can hardly meet a person that didn’t know Mr. Mansfield. And, if they did know him, you never heard anything other than kind words spoken about him. I last saw Mr. Mansfield at one of the cabin days or music events there in Beech Grove a few years back. We’d done several stores with him over the years, one of my favorites was on the old Dodd Cabin that he was restoring. It appeared in our then April 2008 issue of Nelson County Life Magazine.

Listen to my interview with Mr. Mansfield back in March of 2008 about his move to Nelson, his ministry, and the restoration of the old Dodd cabin in Beech Grove. He touches on many things from his past in this roughly 10 minute interview.

By far Mr. Mansfield had become best known for his Piney Mountain Ministries founded back in 1975. He was there just this past July doing what he’s been doing for decades before.
