Did you know that . . . The Middleton Inn, one of Rappahannock County’s fine bed and breakfast establishments, is named for the Washington, Va. property’s first owner, Middleton Miller. But for many years it was known as “The Maples,” for a number of large old trees, some of which stand near the mansion today. Miller, one of the leading citizens of the county, built the house around 1840. He also operated a mill on the Rappahannock River near Waterloo that made “Confederate” gray wool in the first year of the Civil War.
B&B guests, Civil War buffs and others are welcome to visit us at the little red brick building at 328 Gay St. in Washington and become a member of the Society.
