Oak Hill is an historic home of the Marshall family in Delaplane, Virginia.

It lies north of I-66, just east of the US-17/Delaplane exit from westbound I-66. It consists of two separate houses connected by a passageway.[3] The earlier and smaller house, a Colonial farmhouse measuring 32 ft × 30 ft (9.8 m × 9.1 m), was built in 1773 by Colonel Thomas Marshall,[3] father of John Marshall, Chief Justice of the United States.[4] John Marshall lived in the Oak Hill house until his marriage in 1783.[3]

In 1819, John Marshall built an attached 40 ft × 37 ft (12 m × 11 m) temple-form Classical Revival house for his son, Thomas.[3][4] Oak Hill was sold out of the Marshall family in 1864.[3] The property is now a private residence. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]
