NRHP Reference Number


Carter Hill, located about four miles west of the town of Lebanon in Russell County, is an imposing private residence, the seat of a 1,000-acre estate of rolling farm- and timber-lands along Sinking Creek.  The Carter Hill property now retains nearly 250 acres. The house is prominently situated on a hilltop overlooking the creek valley and most of the remaining property is in farm use. Carter Hill is a tall two-story, three-bay, frame Colonial Revival-style residence with Flemish-bond brick veneer. The house was designed and built in 1921-1922 by the architectural and contracting firm W. H. Musser & Son of Abingdon for bachelor Dale Carter Lampkin and his widowed brother-in-law, William Wallace Bird.
