Four Mile House

Sometimes called Mt. Prospect, Four Mile House was built in 1840. It's best known as the place where Confederate staff officer Sandie Pendleton was taken after being mortally wounded during the Battle of Fisher's Hill (1864). From there he was taken to Woodstock, where he died the next day.
