The Hill Mansion (501 South East Street), a four-bay Italianate-style house with a bracketed cornice, segmental windows and other Tuscan features, is an imposing Culpeper landmark built in 1857 and listed individually in the National Register of Historic Places. The distinctive elevated Italianate porch extends across the East Street front, and includes segmental arches, wooden shields, eave brackets, and wrought-iron railings. A very fashionable and stylish house of its period, its exterior brick walls were stuccoed and scored to resemble ashlar. An outside brick kitchen (no longer extant) was situated near the English basement dining room, a typical feature of mid-nineteenth-century residences of the Virginia Piedmont. The house occupies a town lot, and is set back from the street to provide a generous lawn. The three first floor rooms have marble mantels and floor to ceiling windows.
