Originally called The Meadow, Huntingdon is characterized by rolling pastures bordered with the Chapel Rural Historic District region’s distinctive stone walls. The commodious, formally proportioned, limestone farmhouse was erected in 1830 by John Evelyn Page, third son of John and Maria Horsemanden Byrd Page. Page’s parents moved to the area in 1784, during the generation-long migration by members of landed Tidewater families to property held in the state’s northern counties. Both the original five-bay house and the single-pile ell added ca. 1840, remain unaltered from their time of construction, preserving original, late-Federal woodwork. The farm, as well as the entire area, was the scene of considerable Civil War activity from 1862 to 1864. Union troops burned Huntingdon’s large barn in 1862 but the house escaped damage. An original smokehouse and ice pit remain on the property.
