Centre Hill Mansion was built between 1818 and 1823 by Captain Robert Bolling IV, a veteran of the Dinwiddie County Militia during the Revolutionary War, who made his fortune as a tobacco merchant. Centre Hill became a Union headquarters during the Siege of Petersburg and was visited by President and Mrs. Lincoln. Centre Hill showcases several architectural styles that were added by various owners through the decades. The porches feature Greek Revival columns. Inside the mansion there are more Greek Revival as well as Federal and Colonial Revival styles. The early 20th century owners of Centre Hill fell on hard times financially and subdivided the land and sold lots around the home. Today, the homes around Centre Hill themselves comprise an eclectic mix of charming vintage styles.

Located in Old Town Petersburg, Centre Hill Mansion features a gift shop and museum and offers a guided tour of both floors of the mansion that details its rich history. The center hall, grand staircase, and many rooms of Centre Hill with their original hardwoods and high ceilings are richly decorated with period antiques and furnishings. Each room has its stories - and secrets - to tell, and Centre Hill hosts an annual Ghost Watch for Civil War soldiers who are said to march through the house.

Fans of the AMC series TURN can catch a glimpse of the front entrance of Centre Hill in Season 1, and in Season 2 the opulent parlors of Centre Hill serve as the family home of Peggy Shippen, Benedict Arnold's wife. Fans of the PBS original series Mercy Street will spot Centre Hill's grand stair case and richly decorated rooms in scenes set in the Green family's mansion.
