The Abner Cloud house was built in about 1891 as the residence of a second generation miller. Cloud, who had his mill a few hundred yards west of the Maddox Branch, on the Potomac River side of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, was the son of a Chester County Pennsylvania miller. The mill was used as late as 1869 by D. L. Shoemaker.
