La Vista is an architecturally significant antebellum rural farmhouse. Built in 1856, this Virginia Greek Revival house was built for physician/planter Alfred J. Boulware. The body of the house is a Federal-style architectural form, while the gabled portico gives the house its overall Greek Revival flavor. The rear sections of the house, later additions, are sympathetic to the original portion and feature symmetrical double stairs that lead up to a temple portico porch that echoes the front portico.

Many properties listed in the registers are private dwellings and are not open to the public, however many are visible from the public right-of-way. Please be respectful of owner privacy.
