The President's House
Carr's Hill is home to the President of the University of Virginia. Construction finished in 1909, during the first president's tenure. Every University president has lived in the home. The house was specifically designed to mimic the functionality of the Pavilions on the Lawn; the first floor is public-private space used by the President to host meetings and events with students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends of the University, as well as visiting dignitaries from around the Commonwealth and across the globe. As in the Pavilions, the President lives on the upper floors of the house.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register, Carr's Hill, designed by McKim, Mead & White, is an interesting study in architecture that reinterprets Jeffersonian classicism. The home sits on a rise bearing the same name, overlooking the University, and is nestled amongst beautiful gardens and historic outbuildings that pre-date the construction of the main house. The history of Carr's Hill and the buildings on it are long and full of many colorful stories.
