Just beyond the old stable lies a pathway, draped in canopy of luscious greenery and deep roots with a story. The parcels back to a linear park with a woodland trail, known as The Covered Way, which connects the remnants of 3 significant Civil War era fortifications. A ridge runs through Centreville that provides a plateau overlooking the surrounding valleys. This topography was eminently suitable for the monitoring of troop movements, a key factor that led to the construction of the massive Civil War fortifications by Confederate forces at the start of the conflict in 1861. A year later, Union soldiers overtook these fortifications and held the grounds through the end of the Civil War. The Covered Way is a now a walking path, a place to reflect and perhaps envision how soldiers depended on the earthwork fortifications as protection from enemy fire when traveling between forts.
