The Breakthrough Trail
— Pamplin Historical Park —Charles H. Carr, a native of New York, purchased twenty acres from the Boisseaus of Tudor Hall in March 1859. He began construction of the house in front of you shortly afterwards. Carr died in July 1862 while enlisted in the Confederate army. In November of that year, his widow sold the house and property to John Hart, a native of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Hart completed the house and grew market crops on the farm. Most of Hart's neighbors along Duncan Road to the south also operated small farms that provided produce to the residents of nearby Petersburg. Hart enlisted in the Confederate army in April 1864, leaving the farm in the hands of his wife, Mary.
