This house, built in early 1800 and used as a stagecoach stop, was located on Seven Islands Road which ran from Philadelphia to New Orleans. On Nov. 20, 1864, Federal raiders under Gen. Geary destroyed the nearby mill and ferry. At the request of Mrs. Park, the house and contents were not molested though everything was taken from the yard and smokehouse. A Negro servant, Cyrus Park, by using wet blankets on the roof, saved the house from flying embers from the mill. Pres. Jefferson Davis is said to have spent the night of May 4, 1865 in this house, barely escaping capture by the Federals.
