Long Description:
From the excellent "Bridge to Bridge" driving tour guide of Civil War sites in the region (brochure.pdf), "Arrowhill was built in 1857 by Congressman Albert G. Watkins, who had extensive land holdings in the area. The home was built by slave labor, with bricks fired on the grounds. During the War Between the States, the house was used as headquarters by both armies."
