Woodburn is a well-preserved representative of a group of properties built by middle-class farmers of Albemarle County that exhibits fine brickwork and idiosyncratic interior features. Such farms were the basis for much of the settlement and development of the area. The built-in cupboards in the present living room and in the basement are unique survivals. Handsome federal mantels, wainscot, and doors with original hardware are found throughout the house. Much of the woodwork has never been painted. The land was a part of the holdings of the Carr family and the house was built sometime after 1821, when Achilles Broadhead and his wife, Mary Carr, bought the land. It is the name of the next owners, the Mundys, that has long been associated with the house.
