Elmwood is a historic home located at Culpeper, Culpeper County, Virginia. It was built between 1870 and 1874, and is a three-story, double-pile brick dwelling in the Italianate style. It has a central hall plan with a central hall stairway. Also on the property are the contributing outdoor kitchen and smokehouse. The interior features well-preserved interior mural paintings by the well-known local artist, Joseph Oddenino. Oddenino also created the interior of the Mitchells Presbyterian Church.[3]
