White House Ridge


White House Ridge Interpretive Site

The trail ends at a pull off on the present Union CR 167, the site of the home of Enoch Agnew, a planter and retired physician, who moved from South Carolina with his family in 1852. It was here that the Union forces made their final stand on June 10, 1864. Also living here was his son, Rev. Samuel Andrew Agnew who was 30 in 1864. Rev. Agnew is widely known for his first- hand account of the June battle and its aftermath, and his diary, which he kept from the 1850’s till his death in 1902. Samuel Agnew continued to live at White House Ridge and was pastor of the Bethany A.R.Presbyterian Church located at the Crossroads from 1867 till his death.
