The main timber-frame portion of the house was built by the Hitt family before 1790. A log addition was added in the 1830's by the Cost family, nearly doubling the size of the house. After the battle of Antietam, it was used as a hospital and later as a headquarters for Union General George G. Meade. General Joseph K. F. Mansfield ate supper here September 16, 1862. He was killed the following morning. The house was severely damaged by fire in 1989 and has been restored. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
