On the Hill, a circa 1886 Queen Anne-style house occupying nearly 23 acres in the Town of Boydton, sits with its dependencies, as its name implies, on the crest of a small hill. A contributing property in the Boydton Historic District, the three-story house features a Victorian-era wraparound porch, gazebo, turret, soaring and multiple cross-gabled roofs, gingerbread, and naturalistic raised metal designs. Its interior Victorian embellishments also remain intact. Secondary buildings consist of a pump house atop a stone-lined well, a summer kitchen, a smoke house, and a caretaker’s cottage.
