Home of the "Gray Ghost."Although Warrenton was spared the ravages of major battles during the war, control of the town changed hands 67 times and many homes and churches housed soldiers or were used as hospitals. Warrenton was the home of several notable Confederates including Col. John Singleton Mosby, the "gray ghost of the Confederacy." He is honored by the statue at this site. The Old Jail in use during the war, includes a Mosby exhibit.
