Now that we’ve described the area and the land itself – let’s dig into the history of this amazing property! Although no value has been assigned to it, you’ll find a historic 1800’s cabin on this property that was the childhood home of General Joseph Eggleston Johnston. Born in February, 1807, General Johnston attended the United States Military academy (West Point), and was a career U.S. Army officer who served with distinction in the Mexican-American War from 1846-1848, as well as the Seminole Wars. After Virginia seceded from the Union, General Johnston entered the Confederate States army as one of the most senior general officers, fighting in numerous battles against the Union. But how does he play into the history of this property?
As a child of 4, in 1811, his family moved into their newly constructed two-story log home in the Abingdon, VA area. More recently the home was completely disassembled, and reassembled with major improvements on this 223 acre listed property. In pricing this parcel for sale, no value has been placed on the current log structure, although its historical value is priceless. The possibilities for this structure are many. You simply must see for yourself! Read: Joseph E. Johnston: A Civil War Biography by Craig L. Symonds.
