NRHP Reference Number


The house at Taylor Springs, situated in Rockingham County just east of the city of Harrisonburg, is a prime example of a mid-19th-century brick farmhouse. Probably built about 1850 for Evan Henton, the simple I-house form and brickwork reflect the continuing influence of the Federal style on architecture of the Shenandoah Valley. The interior woodwork, however, is executed in the popular Greek Revival style of the period. The farm is associated with a gristmill that once stood on the property and had ties with the nearby medicinal resort area of Taylor Springs, later known as Massanetta Springs.
