The house was designed by John Ariss for Samuel Washington in 1770. Washington moved from his farm on Chotank creek in Stafford County,Virginia to Harewood, accumulating 3800 acres by the time he died in 1781.
Harewood was prominent in the Battle of Summit Point in 1864 when Confederate Gen. Jubal Early advanced over the farm's fields to attack Union Gen. Philip Sheridan at the nearby Locust Hill property.
The property is private, and remains in the Washington family.
