Located in the northwest part of Fauquier County with views west to the Blue Ridge Mountains, and in the Crooked Run Valley Rural Historic District, Woodside is a two-story, brick and log, H-shaped dwelling built about 1800 and completed with a Greek Revival front portion in 1848 by Anne Lewis Marshall, the granddaughter of Chief Justice John Marshall, and her husband James Fitzgerald Jones. The house sits on a rise overlooking a pond, farm pastures, and the valley beyond. The property contains a collection of outbuildings that range in date from the late-18th- to the mid-20th-centuries. Apart from its significant association with the well-known Marshall family, Woodside is an example of a local interpretation of the Greek Revival style by master builder William Sutton and mason Luke Woodward, exhibiting elegant details such as its interior woodwork. Woodside provides a tangible link to Fauquier County’s settlement patterns and rural development.
