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]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1] In 2013, the boundaries of the listing were increased to include 5 acres (2.0 ha) of the surrounding farm and several contributing buildings. One of the buildings included is the Browning Store, a store, home and post office built circa 1773.[4]
