Thomas R. Carskadon House also known as the Carskadon Mansion and "Radical Hill," is a historic home located at Keyser, Mineral County, West Virginia. It was built about 1886, and has two sections: a 2 1/2-story rectangular, brick main block and a two-story rear ell. It features a hip-on-mansard roof and two one-story, brick polygonal bays. It combines features of the Italianate and French Second Empire styles. Also on the property are the ruins of a brick dairy, the cement foundations of a silo, and the stone foundations of another outbuilding.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1]
