About This Old House

Own an authentic part of Virginia colonial history. The Caleb Stone House was built in 1794 and is named for its builder Caleb Stone, whose history takes us directly back to his personal relationship with the first U.S. President, George Washington.

THE HOME: The custom 3-story home features an English kitchen with a wonderful beamed ceiling and eat-up island, 3 full baths, 6 fireplaces, formal living and formal dining, and slate/hardwood floors throughout. A large screened porch overlooks a level back yard where there are woods and a storage building in the rear of your 1.43+/- acres. It feels very private yet you can walk to the Post Office.

ABOUT CALEB STONE: Caleb Stone agreed to be a carpenter at Mt. Vernon (from 1773-1778) and to train Mt. Vernon’s slaves in the art of carpentry. According to “The Papers of George Washington, Colonial Series, Vol. 9, Mesick Cohen & Waite”, Stone agreed to be the “overlooker” of Washington’s enslaved carpenters. In Stone’s agreement he had the responsibility to teach them “the Art and Mistery of the Trade of a Carpenter.” Washington paid Stone forty pounds, plus washing, lodging, food for himself, and pasturage for his horse. Other records indicate that George Washington also paid fifteen pounds to have a coat and waistcoat made for Stone.
