Adam Stephen's House

"Here was home of General Adam Stephen, founder of Martinsburg and county's first sheriff. Was famous as fighter in French and Indian Wars, and as major general in the American Revolutionary War."

General Stephen's home was on the Martinsburg Heritage Days tour. We were greeted by hosts in colonial-era outfits.
