Remains of the Willis Church Parsonage - 2000.(3)
On July 1, 1862, this Parsonage, with Confederate forces around it, was in plain view of the Union Artillery on Malvern Hill. Located several miles from the Willis Church, the remains of the Parsonage, which burned in 1988, are part of the Malvern Hill NPS Park trail.

  The National Park Service, as of this writing - April 26, 2005 - is removing trees and restoring the Malvern Hill battlefield to its 19th Century condition. As a result, the remains of the Willis Church Parsonage are becoming visible from the Union battle line and vice versa, as shown in the following photographs.
