Kyle’s Mill House, located southeast of Harrisonburg in Rockingham County, includes a mid- to late-18th-century log dwelling with later additions, the foundations of a dairy and mill, and 277 acres of pastureland that have been a part of the farm since the mid-1700s. John Stevenson, a Scots-Irish immigrant to the Shenandoah Valley, most likely constructed the original log section of the present dwelling sometime between 1741 and 1783. Around 1750, Stevenson built a mill on the property that was still in use in 1866 according to a map of the county printed that year. The house received additions in 1826 and 1903, creating an L-shaped structure typical of many houses that have evolved over more than two centuries in the Shenandoah Valley.
