During this period it was used a fort during the Revolutionary War and the French and Indian War. This beautiful historic home was built by Dr. Nickerson Snead and his wife Betsy Snead. It was a field hospital Civil War hospital and the cellar was used as a morgue.

  1. Can’t wait until I can travel to Virginia to see this home. Betsy (Elizabeth Scott) is my 1st cousin 6x removed. Francis Kincannon family is related by marriage of George Kincannon and Ann Scott (1st cousin 7x removed) History is awesome!
