Regarding Mosby. The W.P. Gunnell House, has recently been renovated and is used as a parish office and meeting space. Graffiti left by Union soldiers during 1862 and 1863 on the third floor of the Gunnell house remained until the panels upon which it was written were removed in 2004 and loaned to the Fairfax City Museum.
