One of the oldest farms in Rappahannock, Greenfield, formerly part of 1735 Colonial Land Grant from King George II and 1748 land grants from Thomas 6th Lord Fairfax. The original grant acreage was 1750 acres. Greenfield was not named until 1769 when the house was completed. The property originally included what is now the town of Washington and has supported the livelihoods of hundreds of people for over 250 years.
During the Civil War the house was occupied by officers of both the Union and Confederate Armies, and Colonel John Mosby is reported to have stayed for several weeks.
Over the years the property has been whittled down to its present 83 acres, which now supports a herd of black Angus cows, horses, chickens, ducks, geese, guineas and hair sheep.
