Overview

About the property

Large Historic Home On 75 Acre Plantation

"Church Hill'" is a large recently renovated home that was built by the local Reverend Horatio Thompson in 1848. The plantation is also the birthplace of Texas legend Sam Houston, the famous liberator of the Republic of Texas and Governor of the states of Tennessee and Texas. The home is over 4,000 square feet with five bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths and sits on 75 rolling acres about just a few miles outside the city limits of Lexington, Virginia. The home features new stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, wonderful sun room for relaxing and visiting with family and friends. A grand dining room with seating for 13, 5 large and charming bedrooms, and a library media room gathering with family and friends. Three of the rooms in the home were used in scenes from the civil war movie "Gods and Generals" in 2001. The original guest book lists hundreds of people that have traveled from across the US and made the stop at Church Hill to visit the birthplace of Sam Houston. Our guests have told us that a few days here is just not enough. “You just want to bring a book and relax and soak up the history of the home.” Church Hill is a wonderful and unique place to spend time with family and friends and guests continue to leave in awe of the feeling of the history of the home. The property is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and on the Virginia Historic Landmarks Registry. Today it is owned by the sixth generation of Thompson's to call Church Hill their home. Whether you are from Texas or you just want to enjoy local history, we hope you come to stay with us and leave with unforgettable memories of your visit!
