Mount Pleasant, a venerable stone dwelling exemplifying traditional Shenandoah Valley domestic architecture, was erected on the 1740 land grant to John Moffett from King George II. Originally known as Moffetts Bottom, early probate records reflect a house descending to eldest son George in 1749. Colonel George Moffett (1735-1811) completed the construction by 1760 and lived here until his death. During the Revolutionary War, Moffett led the Augusta Militia. In June 1781, Mount Pleasant sheltered Patrick Henry and members of the Virginia Assembly fleeing British troops under Colonel "Blood" Banastre Tarleton. The Moffett family sold the property in 1826 and the interior was remodeled at that time.
