The Mullen-Trout House

On Chester Street, Front Royal, VA
No, Mullen-Trout is not a fish! It's the name of a house that belonged to people named Mullen and Trout. It's about 210 years old.

There's another sign on the house. Perhaps this was a candy store a few years back.

There are quite a few historic buildings on Chester Street so find your way there if you come to Front Royal!

The final photo is one I took across the street from the Mullen-Trout House. I actually posted a different view of this fence in May.
