Green Springs National Historic Landmark District in Louisa County, Virginia is noted for its concentration of fine rural manor houses and related buildings in an unmarred landscape. The district is located 1.5 miles (2 km) north of Interstate 64 from exit No. 136, "Zion Crossroads." The district is roughly bounded by U.S. Route 15 and Virginia Routes 22 and 613.

On May 30, 1974 the district was declared a National Historic Landmark.cite web|url=http://tps.cr.nps.gov/nhl/detail.cfm?ResourceId=1396&ResourceType=District

] On December 12, 1977, the United States Secretary of the Interior agreed to accept preservation easements for nearly half of the convert|14004|acre|km2|0 in the district. This means that the NPS does not own any of the land in the area but merely owns the development rights, ensuring the continuing rural and agricultural nature of the area. The district is an affiliated area of Shenandoah National Park. There are no facilities of any kind provided by the National Park Service in the district.
