Home Site – Nelson County, Virginia
Red Gables was the Nelson County home of John Cabell Early (1848-1909) and his wife Mary Washington Cabell (1846-1917) of Fernley. Both were great grandchildren of John Cabell. John Cabell Early purchased land that was part of the Soldier’s Joy estate and built Red Gables, probably in the mid 1880’s, but only lived there a few years before returning to Bedford.
The home in Nelson County, Virginia was located between Soldier’s Joy and Rock Cliff on Route 647, but is no longer in existence.
