The original portion of the William Virts House was constructed circa 1798 by Virts. He immigrated with his family from Pennsylvania into western Loudoun County, as part of a settlement pattern that saw the arrival of British Quakers, German Lutherans and Scots Irish into the Catoctin Creek watershed. The property also includes a circa 1813 stone springhouse and circa 1840 frame shed on a stone foundation.
