Locust Hill is an early 19th-century Federal-style mansion north of Leesburg in Loudoun CountyVirginiaUnited States. Locust Hill was the home of John Thomson Mason (15 March 1765–10 December 1824), prominent American jurist and Attorney General of Maryland in 1806 and nephew of Founding Father of the United States George Mason.

Locust Hill is believed to have been built for John Thomson Mason, a nephew of George Mason of Gunston Hall and son of Thomson Mason of nearby Raspberry Plain. Although no definite date of construction has been determined, stylistically the house probably dates from the first quarter of the 19th century.
