Summit Point Battlefield

Confederate battle lines formed north and south of the mansion at Richwood Hall, built around 1825, which still stands on Earle Road just south of the Middleway Pike (WV Route 51). A wayside marker interpreting the remains of the John and Lucy Packette House at Locust Hill, located on the grounds of the Locust Hill Golf Course, marks the position of the Union line. Be mindful of private property at these two locations.
