Narrative from Virginia Landmarks Registry

"Designed by Lynchburg architect Stanhope Johnson, Gallison Hall is one of state’s important 20th-century country houses. Dramatically approached through ornamental iron gates, down a tree-lined drive, the many-sectioned mansion presents an idealized image of Virginia’s colonial style. The original owners, Mr. and Mrs. Julio Suarez-Galban, spent many years touring Virginia’s historic homes, noting their favorite features, and had Johnson incorporate these into the design. Specific references to Westover, Stratford Hall, Shirley, Gunston Hall, the Nelson House, and Gadsby’s Tavern are thus found in various parts of the house. Conspicuous exterior elements are the clustered chimney stacks, based on those at Bacon’s Castle. The attention to detail is evident not only in the design but in the fine craftsmanship of the exterior masonry and interior woodwork. Virginia landscape architect Charles F. Gillette designed Gallison Hall’s garden."
