Warren-Sipe House (Virginia Quilt Museum)
The Trails sign for this Civil War Site is located on North Main Street between Franklin Street and Ash Tree Lane in Harrisonburg, in front of the Virginia Quilt Museum. This was the home of Edward T.H. Warren, a Harrisonburg attorney and descendant of Thomas Harrison, the founder of Harrisonburg. Warren went to war early and fought in most of the famous battles in the East until he was killed at the Wilderness in 1864. The home’s structure was used as a hospital following the battle of Gettysburg in 1863 and it was here that Stonewall Jackson’s “Boy General,” Joseph Latimer died. Today, the historic home is open to the public as the Virginia Quilt Museum and interprets the history of the building. The museum also highlights the importance of quilting in society with contemporary and historic quilt exhibits throughout the year.
