1840, late 18th century. 2115 Hinkle Rd.
  • (Virginia Department of Historic Resources)

Midlothian, one of Southside's finest houses, stands on a small rise beside the picturesque, cedar-lined Hinkle Road. The front section of this two-story, three-bay frame house with end chimneys and a single-pile center-passage plan appears to be by one of the Prince Edward County master builders. The designer combined Greek Revival details, notable in the one-story portico and the heavy framing of the facade's triplet windows, with a robust Federal styling, as illustrated in the relatively steep gable roof and the keystoned fan arch over the entrance. A colonnade links the front of the house to a small rear two-story frame section that dates from the late eighteenth century.
