To the south stood the Glebe House of Cumberland
Parish, residence of Anglican minister Rev. James
Craig from 1759 until his death in 1795. An
ardent patriot during the Revolutionary War,
Craig allowed his mill on Flat Rock Creek to be
used as a supply depot for American troops.
While raiding Southside Virginia in 1781, British
Lt. Col. Banastre Tarleton and his cavalry burned
the mill, and suspecting Craig of storing arms
at the Glebe House, held him prisoner until
paroled. The Orgain family, Craig's descendants,
occupied the Glebe property from 1834-1910,
operating the Flat Rock Female Seminary in the
mid-nineteenth century.
