The home of the Plumb Family, this house was witness to the Battle of Waynesboro on March 2, 1865.

Exhibits tell the story of the Battle and feature documents and artifacts relative to the battle as well as the daily lives of the Plumb Family.  This site served as the final collapse of General Jubal Early’s defense of the Shenandoah Valley.  On March 2, 1865, Union Calvary pierced the Confederate defenses sending them in retreat with a large number being captured, essentially ending the war in the Valley.
