Cannot visit, in a gated community. Need to delete from attractions, don’t waste your time, find something else to do.

This historic home actually consists of two structures. The older structure is a stone house build in the 1790's. The new structure was built in 1850 by Lewis Washington and incorporates the older structure at the rear of the house. The house was in a bad state of disrepair until 1980. Since that time it has been restored keeping as much as the original doors, windows, and woodwork as possible. The home currently is part of the Beallair residential community and not open to the public.

Beall-Air, also known as the Colonel Lewis William Washington House, is more noted for a legend that is associated with the house than for its architecture. The original house, now the rear portion of the building, is believed to have been built in 1800. The main portion of the house, a two-story stuccoed brick structure in Classical Revival style, set on a stone foundation, was completed in 1820. Located near Halltown, West Virginia, it was the home of Colonel Lewis William Washington, a great-great nephew of George Washington and a hostage in John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry. It was added to the National Register of Historical Places in 1973. According to legend, Lewis William inherited several relics of George Washington, including a sword allegedly given to Washington by Frederick the Great and a pair of pistols given by the Marquis de Lafayette. John Cook, who served as John Brown's advance party at Harpers Ferry, befriended Washington, took note of the relics, as well as the slave population at Beall-Air. He took Washington, three slaves, the sword and the pistols to Harpers Ferry. In the end, Washington is credited with identifying Brown to the U.S. soldiers who stormed the arsenal at Harpers Ferry. When he surrendered, Brown allegedly was wearing the sword.

Beall-Air, also known as the Colonel Lewis William Washington House, was the home of a great-great nephew of George Washington and hostage in John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. The original house, now the rear portion of the house, is believed to have been built in 1800 lby Thomas Beall. The present front of the house was added in 1820. Located near Halltown, West Virginia, it is a two-story stuccoed brick house in a classical revival style on a stone foundation. The front, or south elevation, has a small portico with a flat roof and four Ionic columns. The front door has sidelights and an overlight echoed by a the second floor window immediately above the portico. A small 2 1/2 story structure to the north of the main house connects to the main house with a two-story link. Lewis William Washington inherited several relics from George Washington, including a sword allegedly given by Frederick The Great to Washington and a pair of pistols given by the Marquise de Lafayette. During John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry, a detachment of Brown's force led by John Cook seized the sword and pistols along with Lewis William Washington and three of Washington's slaves at Beall-Air. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.

Beautiful home of one of the Washington Family. It is located in a gated community and is only open during specific weekends during the year. When the gates are open, you can see the exterior of the house and the small gardens that are to the side of the house.

While the Manor House is open to the public for special events such as Charles Town House Tours, the Beallair Conservancy is a growing, gated residential community. The community is committed to preserving the integrity of the Manor House. If one is looking to move within commuting distance of DC; Frederick, MD; Winchester, VA; or for retirement, this is a community to consider. Residents are wonderful.

The Friends of Happy Retreat, the home of Charles Town founder Charles Washington, arranged for four of the Washington family estates to be open for a day that coincided with the Charles Town Heritage Fair. I made a point of traveling to Charles Town to view these estates. I had been inside three of the four when I lived in the area in the early 1970s. At that time, Bellaire was boarded up and falling into disrepair. I could see it in the distance located in an fruit orchard as I traveled the highway between Charles Town and Harpers Ferry. I had heard that it was now situated in a new housing development, and therefore feared that it was being commercialized or even worse, in an even more deplorable condition that when I last saw it. I was ready for the worse as I turned down the lane that led to it amidst the large newly built houses. Fortunately my fears were unfounded. The company building the development obviously realizes the historical qualities of the original property and are lovingly restoring and re-adapting the house and surrounding property for the 21st century while retaining much of its original integrity. If the structure were again filled with 19th century furniture and personal belongings. I'm sure Lewis Washington and his family would feel quite comfortable in their home again. Right now, it is striped of any furniture so the house can be used for a variety of public (weddings, dinners, club meetings, etc.) and private (company meetings and guest rooms) functions. Although the closets and bathrooms weren't part of the original structure, they blend in nicely and make for a more modern facility that makes it very usable for 21st needs. I do not know if this site is open at other times throughout the year, but it definitely is worth a visit whenever it is.
