Built circa 1820 in the Federal style, the Jarratt house is named for the family who owned the property for over a century. The earliest Jarratt to settle in Pocahontas was John Jarratt, a free black waterman and a founder of the Sandy Beach Church, which later became the Gillfield Baptist Church.
Today the house is a private home.
