Our building dates back to the second decade of the 20th century, when its original structure served as Crozet Ice and Cold Storage Corporation- a cold storage facility where the farmers in the area stored their fruit to ship to local retailers.  In the mid-1970s, after many years out of use, the building was dramatically transformed into a residential community.

The historic town of Crozet is named after Claudius Crozet, who engineered a nearby railroad tunnel through the Blue Ridge Mountains that is considered one of the great engineering wonders of the 19th century.

Today, Mountainside is one of Crozet’s largest employers and provides a warm and homey environment for its over 100 residents with a grand view of Albemarle County’s Piedmont foothills.
