Volunteers are being sought to help repaint a fence at a historic farm on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The Johnson Farm is located near the Peaks of Otter Lodge and Restaurant.

The Friends of the Blue Ridge Parkway plans to give the fence a new paint job on Aug. 10.

Fernando Gracia with the parkway group tells The News & Advance that the Johnson Farm is the only remaining property from the community that existed near the resort before the parkway was built.
