The Spring Hill Farm in Hamilton, Virginia dates to 1830. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005. The listing included five contributing buildings.[1] On the second floor of the home in one of the bedrooms, a lovesick girl who was recently rejected attempted suicide by lighting herself on fire. She failed but left a nasty mark on the floor. It has since been painted over but the texture of the floor remains different. The home sits on a "farm to market" road common in early America. In fact, the name of the road is called "Piggot Bottom" for that very reason. This road connected to highway 7 which led to Washington D.C. where goods from the fields could be exchanged for other things. The current owners (who have lived there since 1984, are named COL Williams (USMC) and his wife.

The main building has a telescope plan design and is built with Flemish bond brickwork.[1][3]
