- The house was built in 1848.
- Over the centuries the structure served as a rest stop, farmhouse, tavern and, ultimately, a Civil War field hospital (twice).
- Henry P. Matthews and family owned the home at the time the Civil War broke out. The Matthews family sold their home and moved away in 1865.
- The Confederates mostly retained control of the house during both battles.
- On the second floor, two soldiers from the 5th New York Infantry carved their names into the floorboards. According to NPS, those etchings are still visible today.
- In the years after the war, many different owners possessed Stone House.
- There are cannonballs embedded in the exterior of Stone House. This was common to find during and after the war, however, the story goes a later owner of the Stone House placed cannonballs over damage that had been done during battle time.
- There are two primary floors and a basement. The first (main) floor is often open to visitors with a rare second floor opening. The basement is not available for tours.
