Lucky Hit is one of the oldest brick houses in southwestern Clarke County, Virginia. The double-pile (i.e. two rooms deep), central hallway house was built by Colonel Richard Kidder Meade around 1791, and was named by Meade in his belief that he had made a fortunate choice in his property. He previously resided at the log house Meadea. His children, including Bishop William Meade, who were raised on this plantation established plantations nearby; many of the historic houses remain today. This property stayed in the Meade family until 1869.
