Boxwood Hill, a Federal-style, two-story brick house, was built about 1833. The property is significant for architecture and social history. Constructed on land owned by George L. Carder, the house was built for a prosperous middling Rappahannock County farming family. Two of its notable design components include a two-door facade, which offered independent and selective access to the two principal rooms, and an original kitchen built into the cellar. Significant auxiliary buildings include a one-room log dwelling, a log shed, and a wood-framed barn.
