         Laurel Hill House Condition Assessment and Treatment Options Report

Laurel Hill House Study (2008)

The Department of Planning and Zoning contracted with Lardner/Klein Landscape Architects and Frazier Associates to conduct an architectural and historical assessment of the Laurel Hill House. This assessment includes recommendations for preservation or interpretive history of the house. A committee of staff and citizens was established to provide recommendations and feedback during this assessment. The final report was received in June 2008 and can be viewed below.

The Laurel Hill House is located within the Adaptive Reuse Area of the former Lorton Prison site, to the south of the ballfield. The late-18th century house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the larger site. It was the home of Major William Lindsay, who served in the Virginia Militia during the American Revolution. In the early 1900s the house was part of the Lorton Prison site, and served as home to the Superintendent of the prison.
