  • 0.23 acres

  • MLS #548028


The Calvert-Collins property represents New Market’s ancestral artisans and craftsmen with the Victorian-style building of the Cushman Carriage Factory. Built in the mid 1870s, the building first housed a cabinet and casket-making shop. Subsequently it was sold to the Cushman brothers, who manufactured carriages and wagons in the building and on the adjacent property. An artifact of that era is a ramp, straddling the front steps and going down to the handmade brick sidewalk. The double doors would swing open and a handsome carriage could be rolled out to the street.

Bring a flashlight, and use extreme caution. Would make an amazing open-plan office space.

9475 South Congress Street:

  • Last listed at $70,000, this property will sell at or above $15,000!
  • The Stagecoach Inn
  • 2,520 square feet
  • 0.23 acres
  • 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
  • MLS #548037

Built about 20 years before the Calvert house and its Classical-style fireplace surrounds, the Stagecoach Inn has mantels and surrounds that illustrate a distinctly German (specifically, Hessian) heritage. This reflects the early settlements in the Shenandoah Valley, which more closely resembled Pennsylvania than the closer Virginia tidewater. The Pennsylvania Dutch (mostly Germans, “Deutsch”) were the earliest settlers of the area. The two-story inn was built in the era of hand tools and muscle power. Located right in the middle of New Market's charming main center for commerce.

This a probably a complete renovation project. Please use care when showing. Amazing potential here.
