Soldier's Rest is a historic farmhouse located in Berryville, Clarke County, Virginia. It was constructed about 1780 for the family of William Morton, it was later owned and added to by Daniel Morgan, a general in the American Revolution, and by Col Griffin Taylor, a veteran of the War of 1812, perhaps giving the home its name "Soldier's Rest".
Prior to the current house being built, a smaller one stood some 200 yards away, and said to be the place where George Washington stayed when he was surveying the land here for Lord Fairfax in 1748.
