The Yager House

The house to your left is the Yager House.  It is a 1 1/2 story stone house with a frame ell at the rear, four-bay front facade with two central doors, a portico with a front gable, and two interior stone chimneys.yager.JPG (40778 bytes)  The house may have been built by Silas Benjamin Yager about 1830-32.  Silas Yager was a descendant of the early German settlers of Virginia to build and work in iron furnaces.  The two front doors are perhaps a reflection of Yager's German origins.  Two front doors are often found on houses in areas of Pennsylvania where Germans settled.  The Yager House has been nominated to the National Register of Historic Places. 

Caution:  As you proceed down Aiken road it is very narrow and curvy.  A one lane bridge is right out of a curve and difficult to see oncoming traffic.  There is somewhat of a pull-off on the right after you cross the bridge.
