Significance: Locust Grove is a good example of late 18th century, vernacular architecture. The double front and rear entries suggest a possible German influence which is somewhat unusual east of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Two back-to-back stairways, on the first floor, lead to two completely separate living spaces on the second floor. / Locust Grove, probably built in the 1790's, remains little changed except for one addition built in 1885. The double front and rear doorways suggest a possible German influence. One unusual feature of the house is the completely separate living spaces on the second floor, accessible by two back-to-back, interior stairways.
