George Washington slept in this circa 1750 home
Mount Jackson, VA
6059 Main St, Mount Jackson, VA 22842
For Sale: $399,900
Despite the remodel and system upgrades, this house maintains the aura of the original 18th century structure that served as one of the places where the "father of our country" caught some shut-eye. This home, the oldest on the Mount Jackson real estate market, is billed as a place where "Geo.Washington Slept." Built in 1750, this fantastic restored log home sits on Mill Creek in the Shenandoah Valley. It may have touches that Washington never saw, like new appliances, central air, granite counters and hammered copper sinks, other facets harken back 260 years: a wine cellar, stone walls, five fireplaces, random pine floors, stone chimneys and exposed log. Clearly, these logs weren't cherry wood, otherwise, maybe the honest first president would have taken a swing at them.
