History of Stoneleigh
The original property of Stoneleigh was a 1742 grant of 560 acres to John Dixon of Delaware. On the western end of the property is a 910 foot knob known as Round Hill. The eastern section of the Stoneleigh property is located on the original 1742 Fairfax grant.
Sometime later, the first small stone house was built overlooking the pond behind the number 18 green. It is believed to be the oldest building on the property. The main house, called Mount Sylva, was built for Mason James and his wife.
During the Civil War, an adjacent barn was set on fire by Sheridan’s troops but was quickly put out by Eliza James Harris, a daughter of the owner, who saved the barn which is still standing.
In 1913, a descendant, Fleet James sold the property for $7,700 to University of Chicago professor William E. Dodd who later became the ambassador to Germany. Dr. Dodd bought additional acreage and renamed the property Stoneleigh. Dodd used the property for orchards and a dairy operation. A stone mausoleum was on the property enclosed in a fence near the main house.
