Summary

Significance: This structure of reddish brown native stone is located on the north side of Lee Highway, near its junction with the Manassas-Sudley Road. Two and a half stories with inside end chimneys and gable roof it is strikingly reminiscent of buildings still standing alongside the Alexandria-Leesburg Pike. The Stone House is a sturdy structure of pleasing proportions, practically devoid of interior trim. The kitchen appears to have been located in the basement and an original stair seems to have descended to this area. The present stair is probably a replacement of the post Civil War period. During the Civil War the house was twice engulfed in battle, serving alternately as hospital for the wounded of each side. Shells are still to be seen embedded in the walls.
Unprocessed Field note material exists for this structure: FN-127, FN-342
Survey number: HABS VA-144
Building/structure dates: 18t1 Initial Construction
