In the 1890s a nun named Katherine Drexel—later named a saint—transformed Virginia's Belmead-on-the James plantation, including its Gothic Revival manor house (pictured), into a pair of innovative schools for African-American and Native American students in the 1890s.

Set in rolling, riverside woods, many of the historic buildings on the former plantation—once home to slaves—have deteriorated since the schools' closings in the 1970s, and some need emergency repairs, according to the trust.
