Long Description:
Willow Wall

This U-shaped Georgian~Tidewater house, built 1811~12, was the home of the McNeill family. During the Civil War, McNeill's Rangers, a Southern band of guerillas, used it as a home base. Confederate Gen. Bradley Johnson headquartered here before the Battle of Moorefield, and both armies treated their sick and wounded on the property. Added to the National Register in 1973.
