Known for many years as "Old Wilderness Tavern," the frame building at your left of this view, was a dependency of a by-gone complex. The site of the main structure is located by the brick ruins to the right of the picture, taken about 1865. In the distance may be seen the Lacy House, or Ellwood, which survives today, and beyond which swirled the fighting in the battle of the Wilderness in May 1864. The chimney preserved here is all that remains of the outbuilding, which burned in 1978.
