South of Funkstown on Poffenberger Road, West of Alt Route 40. The beautiful stone work and graceful lines compliment the Claggett estate, “Valentia”, whose mansion still stands. This industrious family was among the very the first in the valley to introduce agricultural machinery. The estate’s agricultural and milling operation was so successful that the Claggett Farm with upwards of a hundred workers in its fields and mills, actually set grain prices throughout the region.
