Solomon and Caroline Wunder Heater lived in the small house on their 500 acre farm, Cedar Grove, during the Battle of Cedar Creek. Monte Vista was built on part of Cedar Grove on the east side of the Valley Pike. Mrs Heater applied for reparations for the damage done to the farm. Her son Charles finally received $5,480, less than half Mrs. Heater's claim.
