Narrative from Virginia Landmarks Registry

"Guthrie Hall is perhaps Albemarle County’s largest and most architecturally individual country mansion, resulting from the influx of plutocrats into the area around the turn of the 20th century. With its porticoes, loggias, quadrant wings, and conspicuous wide arch framing the entrance, the massive house combines Georgian Revival, Palladian, and Rustic influences. Its construction incorporates concrete floors and concrete walls whose exterior surfaces are embedded with quartz stone. Guthrie Hall was erected ca. 1901 for John Guthrie Hopkins, a Scottish-born, self-made copper magnate who came to Virginia to pursue his hobby of restoring old houses. The house was designed by Frederick Hill, an architect with the firm of McKim, Mead, and White; the engineer was Fred Kennedy. In addition to the finely-appointed interiors of the main house, the estate boasted a bowling alley as well as a private railroad station. Guthrie Hall is located in the Southern Albemarle Rural Historic District."
