1826Built in 1826 as a private residence, this Federal style house was acquired by the War Department in 1837 and became U.S. Armory dwelling No. 55. Jefferson Davis signed the deed in 1852 when the government sold the house to Armory worker James Mills. B&O railroad engineer C.E. Riley and family owned and occupied the house from 1907 to 1975. Riley's granddaughter, descendant of local Confederate Partisan Ranger Jim Riley (Virginia Cavalry), is the current owner and resident.
