The Shriver House

Shriver sitting room
The home of George Washington Shriver has been restored to its original 1860s appearance to preserve its history for future generations. It is located in the heart of the National Register Historic District where the streets were filled with Confederates and citizens took cover in their cellars during the battle. Tours include all four floors of the Shrivers' home - from the Confederate sharpshooters nest in the garret to the cellar that housed Shriver's Saloon.
