Colonial Settlement Clearview


“Clearview,” on the highest point above Falmouth has many fascinating stories – especially its Civil War history which featured ownership by two sisters named Scott (one Unionist and one Confederate)  whose adventures saw them through the filter of war, as the house was used as a headquarters and artillery position.  After the war, based on the loyalty of one Scott sister and the testimony by a Union general, she received half the requested compensation from the Federal Government.  (photo: Stafford County Historic Resources Study)
