The "Smith Barn" also near Keedysville was used as a hospital. This wartime photograph illustrates the rather austere conditions seen in many of the field hospitals, compared to modern emergency facilities and response teams. (Submitted on October 28, 2007, by Craig Swain of Leesburg, Virginia.) 

3. The Pry House Museum. Not to be confused with the mill, the Pry House was also used as a hospital (as well as General McClellan's headquarters). The house is open seasonally with exhibits related to Civil War medicine. (Submitted on October 28, 2007, by Craig Swain of Leesburg, Virginia.)
