HISTORICAL SITE DETAILS

Aspen Hall Inn and Mendenhall's Fort

Martinsburg, West Virginia

The Aspen Hall property contains three structures from the time of the French and Indian War. The limestone blockhouse from Mendenhall's Fort is one of the last of its kind still standing. Also still standing are the houses of John Mendenhall and Edward Beeson, which were probably at one point surrounded by the "settler's fort", a wooden stockade extending from the blockhouse's inner corners. While commander of Virginia's Provincial Forces, George Washington garrisoned troops at Mendenhall's on several occasions. The property was also known as Mendenhall's Mills, since Mendenhall and Beeson supplied flour, meal and fruit to troops during the French and Indian and Revolutionary Wars. Also nearby is the Berkeley County Historical Society.
