    In 1871, Dr. James Hunter of Banff, Scotland sent his sons James and John Craig to find a new home in the United States. In 1874, they purchased Moorefield, which until 2003, stood on land adjacent to Nottoway Park. The family settled into the Moorefield House. In 1890, John C Hunter constructed a home for himself: Hunter House (9601 Courthouse Road, Nottoway Park, Vienna) .
    The original house was a typical turn-of-the-century frame farm house. The two-story building had two chimneys on the outside of the north and south walls, a wood shingle roof and beveled siding. The first floor contained an entry stair hall, a living room with a fireplace, a large kitchen and a pantry. The two second floor bedrooms were probably heated by fireplaces or stoves. The original house had no plumbing, electricity or central heating. A 110-foot deep well was dug outside, close to the south wall of the kitchen.
    By 1920 it had had improvements by several other owners.
