Built before 1800 by Elisha Melton, a well-to-do farmer, Earlyhouse is a large, T-shaped two story frame farmhouse with tall, free standing brick chimneys. Located near Beaver Creek, it is mere miles from Louisa Courthouse on land once owned by Sheriff Johnson of Roundabout Castle.

Several very old family cemeteries are on the hill overlooking the grounds.It is also the final resting place of Private Nathaniel McGehee, a young Confederate soldier killed at the Battle of Strasburg.
