Buckshoal Farm is a property along with a historic home located near Omega, Halifax County, Virginia. The earliest section was built in the early-19th century, and is the two-story pitched-roof log section of the main residence. The larger two-story, pitched-roof section of the house with its ridge perpendicular to the older section was added in 1841. It features a porch that is configured to follows the shape of the ell and bay of the front of the house. The third two-story addition dates to circa 1910. Also on the property are the contributing log smoke house, well-house and a frame shed. Buckshoal Farm was the birthplace and favorite retreat of Governor William M. Tuck.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1]
