Erected about 1729-30 by Colonel Landon Carter, one of three sons of Robert King Carter, Sabine Hall is nationally significant for its architectural importance. Although the main house exterior was altered in 1764 and again in the early nineteenth century, the plan of the main house has been little changed. The ground floor rooms, the stair hall, and the second floor hall have superb early Georgian woodwork and paneling which give the house its outstanding architectural distinction. Also contributing to the architectural significance of the house is the elliptical arch separating the central hall and the stair hall, and the stair itself. - NRHP
