Hillside, also known as Little Elmington, is a 1-1/2 story brick house near Charles Town, West Virginia dating to "circa" 1798-1800. The house possesses a striking two-story gallery supported by five large round columns. The property includes a rubblestone barn and spring house. The house's name referes to its construction into the natural hillside in a manner similar to that of a bank barn, with the principal entry on the upper, uphill level.citation|title=PDFlink| [http://www.wvculture.org/shpo/nr/pdf/jefferson/85003521.pdf National Register of Historic Places Nomination: Hillside] |4.11 MB|date=April 2, 1984 |author=Michael J.
