Summary

Significance: Frances Benjamin Johnston and HABS both recorded the house known as Bellmont because it was said to have belonged to Archibald Cary and to have been the first dwelling not built with log construction in this part of the state. Likely the one and one-half story wood frame house was constructed by (or for) Judith Cary, Archibald Cary's daughter, and her husband David Bell in the middle of the eighteenth century.

At the time of the surveys by Johnston and by HABS, Dr. Stinson owned the property.
Unprocessed Field note material exists for this structure: FN-7
Survey number: HABS VA-11-14
