volcoulon mansion

Valcoulon Mansion was built in 1829 by Col. John Lewis on land near where Ft. Tackett was located. This was called Camp Tompkins and used by the Confederates during the nearby Battle of Scary Creek in 1861.

The magnificiant house was razed in 1916 to make way for the Rossler & Hasslacher Chemical Company for wartime chemical production. Later... the site of the Valley Drive-in and now 84 Lumber.
