Built in 1847-1849, this house was originally built as the Armory?s Paymaster Quarters and was used as a headquarters by Maj. Gen. Philip Sheridan before his devastating raid down the Shenandoah Valley. After the War, this was where the Storer Normal School was started in 1867.

Several other buildings of the school still exist as part of the National Park Service's Mather Training Center.
