Confederate HospitalThe mansion in front of you is Mill Island, constructed about 1840 in the Greek Revival style for Felix Seymour and his wife, Sidney McNeill Seymour. During the Civil War, Mill Island served as a Confederate hospital, especially for Capt. John Hanson McNeill's Rangers, a locally recruited partisan band. In addition, according to local tradition, the Hardy County court clerk stored records here, away from the courthouse, for safekeeping during Federal incursions for fear that the courthouse might be burned.
