Arnold Farm

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 22 November 2019 in Architecture.

During the Civil War, the Arnold Farm became a staging area for Union Troops as they prepared to ascend South Mountain and push the Confederate troops back. Sharpshooters used the farm's large bank barn for cover. The house may have also been used to shelter wounded soldiers in the weeks after the battle.

"There are moments when time stands still. You hope it will wait for you."
