Graffiti House at Brandy Station

19484 Brandy Road, Brandy Station, VA 22714, USA  | More on: Brandy Station »

A two-story frame structure located directly beside the railroad tracks, the Graffiti House is believed to have been constructed in 1858. According to local tradition, the building was used as a hospital site by Confederate soldiers following the Battle of Brandy Station and other local battles. Union solders used the house during the Winter Encampment of Brandy Station in 1863-1864. The Graffiti House is named for the signatures, inscriptions, and drawings of Civil War soldiers who drew on the walls with charcoal and pencil. Much of the graffiti that still survives is on exhibit in the house. Other exhibits depict the Civil War history of Brandy Station and Culpeper County.
