Nestled between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Massanutten Range in Page County, Locust Grove was built around 1830. The brick, two-story Federal-style house reveals the tendency of builders to adapt designs depicted in the era’s popular pattern books and integrate them into a house’s interior and exterior details. In 1875 Locust Grove saw the addition of a service wing, and on the property the addition of two domestic outbuildings. Despite a few changes since that time, Locust Grove maintains it historic integrity of construction and setting.
