The modern Commissioner of the Revenue position was created in 1869 when VA Constitution was rewritten and VA was readmitted to the Union, following the Civil War. After two original cabin buildings were connected by additions in 1889, the home was registered with the newly reformed Commissioner of Revenue. In the 1900's, further additions were added. Unique build designs are evidence, such as stairs to accommodate Victorian dresses with petticoats, a staircase was added on the side for easier access to the upper level. Supposedly used as Headquarters for Colonel Mosby during the Civil War. Colonel John Mosby was a Confederate army cavalry battalion commander in the American Civil War. The NY Times Archives states in article from The Baltimore American, of how in 1864, the Colonel went into the home, but was tricked by Corporal Simpson of the 21st New York Infantry Regiment," leaving Col. Mosby dismounted & outwitted of his best horse, saddle, pistols and overcoat, two Yankee prisoners, and with at least one vacancy among his commissioned officers."
This property was originally the current dining room & cabin, thought to be used as a headquarters and area for soldiers, supported by building descriptions in this and other articles. Peter Glascock acquired the deed for what became this village in 1786 from Kimball Hicks. The land had been part of the Northern Neck Proprietary and part of Thomas Lord Fairfax's Leeds Manor. With sweeping views of the rolling Blue Ridge foothills, Paris is a village once called Pun'kinville due to the remote location. The VA General Assembly in 1810 issued a charter for a town at the intersection of Ashby Gap Road(authorized to be paved that year, later became Route 50) and the Dumfries-Winchester Road (Route 17), though the town was actually platted two decades earlier. In 1819 the town was renamed to memorialize the tour of the returning Marquis de Lafayette to the US after the War of 1812. The area was surveyed by George Washington in 1769.
