A leading historic farm in a region of fine farms, Inglewood occupies a commanding site just north of Harrisonburg in Rockingham County. The property was purchased in 1818 by Robert Gray, a Harrisonburg attorney. Gray built Inglewood’s residence ca. 1849-51 for his younger son Douglas on the occasion of his marriage to Isabella Pinckney, daughter of the diplomat William Pinckney. With its gable roof and regular five-bay façade, the double-pile brick house recalls the Federal dwellings of earlier decades. A full complement of outbuildings and farm buildings reinforces an air of agrarian prosperity. In 1876 Inglewood was purchased by Confederate Gen. John E. Roller, for his parents. Margaret Grattan Weaver, a granddaughter of Gen. Roller, and her late husband James M. Weaver, purchased the estate from Lucy Cabot Roller in 1945. During a subsequent renovation remarkable antebellum folk-carved mantels from a Roller house in Harrisonburg were installed in Inglewood.
