NRHP Reference Number


The original portion of the William Virts House was constructed circa 1798 by Virts, who immigrated with his family from Pennsylvania into western Loudoun County. This was part of a settlement pattern that saw the arrival of British Quakers, German Lutherans, German Lutherans, and Scots Irish Presbyterians into the Catoctin Creek watershed. He later expanded the house to two-and-a-half stories around 1813 and remodeled it in the Federal style. A two-story wooden porch was added to the south side of the house in 1930, and a one-story brick addition was built to the west in 1999. The property also includes a circa 1813 stone springhouse and circa 1840 frame shed on a stone foundation.
