Furr Farm in Loudoun County was the site of a fierce cavalry skirmish during the Civil War Battle of Aldie, fought in June 1863. The house at Furr Farm, portions of which date to circa 1790, served as a field hospital during the battle at Furr Farm. At the time of its listing, the property remained largely unaltered from its original appearance. Among the farm’s historic landmarks are a stone wall that figured in the battle and an 1891 monument to the 1st Massachusetts Cavalry Regiment, commemorating Union soldiers who died during the battle.
