Construction for this now private residence home began in 1791 near the Great Indian Warpath/Great Stage Road. The surrounding community became known as Barton’s Spring after Isaac Barton expanded the structure in 1820. Three unmarked graves of Civil War fatalities are located on the property, and it is said soldiers from both sides benefited from the spring’s cooling waters.
