Grove Mount is a historic plantation house located near Warsaw, Richmond County, Virginia. The main house was built about 1780-1800, and is a large, two-story, five bay Late Georgian style frame dwelling. It has a hipped roof and interior end chimneys. A kitchen wing was added in 1952 and an orangery added in 1989. Also on the property are the contributing late-18th century dairy, a log corn crib, and a late-19th or early-20th century frame outbuilding. There is also the archeological site of the former kitchen and possibly other outbuildings adjacent to the old kitchen.[3]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1]
