Vestal's Gap Road, originally an American Indian trail, served as the primary colonial roadway from Alexandria to Winchester from 1722 until 1825. The Lane family built the earliest portions of this house in the 1770's. By 1807 it was in use as an ordinary and was serving as the Lanesville Post Office. As such this house would have been a social gathering spot for travelers and local families. Descendants of Keturah Lane lived in the house until it was sold to Dr. Claude Moore in 1941. Loudoun County purchased the site in 1990.
