Rocky Mills, built c. 1750, was a Georgian mansion in Hanover County, Virginia. Disassembled and relocated about 21 miles to Henrico County, Virginia in 1928, it was reassembled and expanded by architect H. Louis Duhring, Jr.

The woodwork and paneling of its rooms is particularly fine.

Now renamed "Fairfield," the property, including four contributing buildings, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1][3]
