VA-J7 The McKay Home

Marker text: THE MCKAY HOME

A short distance west, at Cedarville, stands the old home of the pioneer Robert McKay. Built of walnut logs, it is one of the oldest houses in the valley. In 1731, Joist Hite, Robert McKay and others received a grant of 100,000 acres. Hite settled on the Openquon and McKay at this place on Crooked Run. These men opened the valley to succeeding settlers.
