Pictured, from left, are James Milnor Robers III of Fairfax Station, Va.; Katherine Gibson Newcomer; and W. Milnor Roberts V. About 60 members of the Roberts family from all over the country attended the event. The family of W. Milnor Roberts Sr., an engineer and businessman, was the second and last family to live in the Gordon-Roberts House. The first was prominent attorney Josia Hance Gordon, who built the home in 1867. The home was purchased from Roberts’ estate by the Allegany County Historical Society in 1954 and is now operated as a house museum.
