This auction features quite possibly the oldest formal dwelling in Alleghany County, Virginia. The "Massie House” is a Federal style home built in 1825-1826 by Henry Massie with Thomas Massie’s money. The home is built on land that was granted to Thomas Massie from a land grant in 1781. Thomas served as a Major under George Washington. As you approach this stately home, as well as sitting atop the hill, you will see why it was named Oak Grove. Surrounded by the majestic oaks this property is well worth the effort to restore it to its past grandeur. Situated in Alleghany County just south of Hot Springs, Virginia, this area boasts some of the best mountain views around. The house is on the National Register of Historical Places.
