Long Description:

Cuckoo, long a landmark for travelers, was built
for Henry Pendleton about 1819. Nearby once
stood the Cuckoo Tavern, from which in 1781 Jack
Jouett made his famous ride. The Pendletons,
a prominent family of physicians whose
descendants still own the house, constructed
two doctor's offices at Cuckoo that still
stand; one was built in the 18th century
and one in the 19th. The house retains
man Federal-style details as well as an
early-20th-century Colonial Revival
portico. Cuckoo was listed on the National
Register of Historic Places and the Virginia
Landmarks Register in 1994.
