Augusta County, Virginia

Henry Miller was an important early Virginia industrialist.  Around 1774, he and a partner established Mossy Creek Iron Works to produce iron bar, cooking pots, stoves, axes, and picks. During the Revolution, the ironworks produced cannons, cannonballs and small arms.

 Miller built his residence at Mossy Creek in the mid 1780s and the house still stands today as a rare example of 18th century Shenandoah Valley architecture. This two story springhouse is one of two original outbuildings still standing on the property. The Henry Miller house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
