The Sloan–Parker House or Stone House, constructed in 1790 of locally quarried fieldstone for Richard Sloan, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. Located on the Northwestern Turnpike (U.S. Route 50) near Junction, West Virginia west of Romney it has served as a stage coach stop as well as a private residence. The Stone House has been owned by two families: the Sloan family until 1854 when it was sold to the Parker brothers: John, Peyton, Benjamin, and William. Current owners are fourth generation Parkers: Mr. David Renick Parker,and family.

House[edit]

The house is "T" shaped and consists of the original section, built of stone about 1790, and a frame section, built about 1900. The original section measures approximately 45 feet long and 40 feet deep. The stone walls taper from a nearly 36 inch thickness at the base to only 12 inches at the top. Also on the property are an old log smokehouse and a contributing large barn built in 1803. The house served as a coach stop on the road from Romney to Moorefield and Petersburg from about the time of the American Civil War until the coming of the railroad around 1910.[2]

Stone House Cemetery[edit]

The Stone House's cemetery is located across U.S. 50 along Mill Creek. Buried in the cemetery are the house's builder, Richard Sloan, and his wife, Charlotte. Also buried there are American Revolutionary War soldier Leonard Ludwick, his wife Katherine, and War of 1812 General John Sloan.
