Benjamin Stratton, a member of the family that had owned the land since 1636, constructed this finely crafted house nearby about 1764, according to dated chimney bricks.Perhaps built on the site of an earlier Stratton dwelling, the house exemplifies the 18th - century vernacular architecture typical of Virginia's Eastern Shore. Among the features of the regional form are frame construction. Flemish-bond brick ends, chevron patterns in the gables, exterior chimneys with steepy sloping weatherings, and paneled chimney walls inside. Stratton was a chairmaker as well as a farmer, giving the house significance as an artisan's dwelling of the Revolutionary era.
