Rich Mountain BattlefieldHere stood the Hart House, surrounded by fierce fighting during the Battle of Rich Mountain. Joseph Hart, grandson of a signer of the Declaration of Independence, was an avid Union supporter who fled with his family when Confederates seized the mountain. Their two-story log home gave shelter during the battle and served as a hospital afterwards.
