The Ballard-Maupin House was constructed in the late-18th-century and exhibits the typical form and construction features utilized in Western Virginia during and shortly after Western European settlement in the region. The home was built for Thomas Ballard and features hand-carved woodwork: random-width pine floors, paneled wainscot, beaded ceiling joists, and finely carved mantels. Gabriel Maupin purchased the house in the 1850s; it remained in the family until 1990. The contemporary owners undertook a complete restoration of the Ballard-Maupin House in 1994-95. There were less than a dozen of these property types left in Albemarle County at the end of the 20th century.
