Historic sites between Staunton and Dulles

We will be driving from Dulles Airport to Staunton the second week in September. I saw the list of the four top sites to visit in Staunton and we will be visiting those places (Woodrow Wilson home and the Frontier Museum). But on our way to and from the airport, we would like to visit a couple of historic sites not far from the highway. Any suggestions?

Hope this isn't too late. Front Royal has a charming historic Main Street and some historic homes. It is just off I-66


Among them the Belle Boyd Cottage, in case you did not know Belle Boyd was a spy for the Confederacy.

I'll add New Market battlefield to the list. It's just off I-81 in New Market just north of Harrisonburg. They have a nice little museum there as well.

The story behind the battle (re-enacted every year) is worth the stop.
