The strong stone house that is Cider Mill House * has stood the test of time and been silent witness to
200 years of history. Before its existence a log cabin stood to the South - most likely the temporary
residence while the stone house was being built.
Since the land was granted by Lord Thomas Fairfax to Aron Jenkins, November 18, 1752, eleven
owners have planted orchards, raised livestock, farmed the land and made the stone house home.
Before the land was taken and granted by the English Crown, Native Americans passed across it on
well worn trails. They paused at the spring and mined flint from the hillside. Hundreds of their
“points” and tools have been found in and around the spring and garden area.
The French & Indian War, the Revolutionary War and the War Between the States have left their
mark on the property and the surrounding region.
Some nearby historic sites include Ft. Frederick, Hagerstown, MD, Antietam ,Sharpsburg, MD,
Gettysburg, PA, Harpers Ferry, WV, Berkeley Springs, WV ( Geo. Washington’s spa),
The C&O Canal Nat’l Park.
Martinsburg, Hedgesville and Berkeley Springs offer shops and historic sites as well.
*And...why do we call it Cider Mill House? At one time an apple cider press and mill was located to
the West of the house near the barn. We recovered the hand hewn drive screw mechanism from the
barn and and the iron band that held the grind stone along with other pieces that had tumbled
into the creek.
