Round Hill is a town in Loudoun County, Virginia. The town is located at the crossroads of Virginia routes 7 and 719 (Woodgrove Road), approximately 50 miles northwest of Washington, D.C. It was named "Round Hill" for being located two miles northeast of a 910-foot hill used during the American Civil War as a signal post by both Confederate and Union troops.
Round Hill was incorporated on February 5, 1900. From 1874 to 1900, the settlement had been the terminus of a Washington and Ohio rail line that ultimately became the Washington and Old Dominion Railroad. The railway allowed agricultural products to be brought into Washington, D.C., and allowed the residents of the District to escape to the surrounding countryside for holidays. Many of the town's older residences were originally boarding houses, inns, and taverns where people would go upon arrival. The town was considered a convenient destination as it lies close to the Shenandoah River (7 miles distant), the Shenandoah National Park (30 miles), the Appalachian Trail (4 miles), Harpers Ferry (15 miles), the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal Tow Path (used currently as a bike trail) (12 miles), and the paved Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Trail (3 miles).
The town has recently been ringed by fast-growing suburbs of Washington, D.C., that have brought thousands of residents to just outside the town. The town's water and sewer infrastructure is used to serve many of these new developments.
The Ketoctin Baptist Church, Round Hill Historic District, and Woodgrove are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
