Home was built by one of the most prominent land owners in the Amissville area. It was the "home place" for significant acreage going to the Rappahannock River to the North. The home was built in the 1880's with many touches highlighting the prosperous status of the owner. Two primary brick chimneys provide outlets for heating stoves in 3 additional rooms, All hearths and mantles are original . A past fire required the kitchen to be rebuilt but not to its original size. In the 1070's when Lee Highway was expanded the house has moved approx 500 feet to present location. (The move precluded the home from being considered for submission as a registered historic property)
