Galemont in Fauquier County is a 237-acre farm located in the Broad Run/Little Georgetown Rural Historic District, on the western approach to Thoroughfare Gap, the mountain pass through which a colonial road extended west toward Winchester by the mid-1700s. The house, which dates to the late 1700s, evolved with expansions in 1857, 1872, and between 1887-1904, resulting in a unique combination of Federal/Greek Revival and Folk Victorian stylistic elements. Galemont also witnessed the 1862 Civil War Battle of Thoroughfare Gap. Traces of the colonial-era road are visible today on the property.
