Half a mile west stood Greenfield, the home of Col. William Preston. According to local tradition, Stephen Rentfroe constructed a fort there in the 1740s. In 1759, Preston bought the property from Rentfroe and soon built a house that evolved into a large log-and-frame L-shaped dwelling; a portico supported by two-story columns sheltered the front. Preston became a prominent frontier military leader during the French and Indian War (1754-1763) and the Revolutionary War (1775-1783). He also served in the Virginia House of Burgesses (1765-1771). Greenfield, later the home of Gov. James P. Preston, burned in 1959.
