The house has undergone several transformations, reflecting the passage of time and the influence of its dedicated owners. In 1863, the house served as a rectory for St. Paulâs Episcopal Church. During this period, a wing was added to the rear contributing to the distinctive cruciform shape of the home. Notable Centreville families, including the McKennyâs, have left their mark on the property as evidenced by the lock on the front door. Judge William Raymond Horney made substantial enhancements to the property in the 1920s, adding wings to both sides of the original structure and designing the beautiful formal gardens.
