~~Teacher’s Place is a private residence for teachers that was developed in honor of Mabel Smith Bentley. Mrs. Bentley began a teaching career in 1935 as a physical education teacher at Charlotte Courthouse, Virginia. Later, in 1945, Mrs. Bentley and her husband, Melvin Bentley moved to Roanoke, Virginia, and purchased a home at Tenth and Fairfax N.W. as a place to start their family. Four children were born to that union, two of which became teachers in the state of Virginia. The previous house was razed in 1971. Teacher’s Place was built on the same property in 2004 by Dr. Carl Bentley, the third child of Mr. And Mrs. Bentley. Dr. Bentley is a retired 12th Grade Government teacher in Fairfax County, Virginia.
