Built by Colonel William Harwood, Jr., signer of the Virginia Resolves, this home has experienced the ordeal of three wars. The home was visited by Generals George Washington, Thomas Nelson, Jr. and George B. McClellan and the Revolutionary War brought 3,000 militia to its fresh water spring. The War of 1812 saw its use as a training ground, while the Civil War found this property serving as a Confederate captain's home and a hospital for both sides.
