Description 

The Campbell Mansion and its accompanying landscape is significant not only as the home of Alexander Campbell, a guiding light in the founding of the Christian church movement, but as an important example of the vernacular architecture and landscape associated with a prosperous northwestern Virginia community leader, educator and farmer. -- Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS WV-212)
