Elkton, an incorporated town in Rockingham county Virginia. Formerly known as Conrad's store built by George Conrad.
Adam Miller was one of the first European - Americans to settle here and a native of Germany. Miller purchased 820 acres in 1741 which included a large lithium spring near Elkton. He sold 280 acres to his son in law, Jacob Baer. The spring on Millers land is still known as Bear Lithium spring.
We ate at this little diner and across the street had to get a closer look at this old home. Beautiful I am sure in its day as is the beautiful picturesque farmland that surrounds it.
Pretty fields and barns surrounding it.
More on the Mansion in next post.
