Zion Hill (also Sion Hill) was located in Buckingham County. It was between Warminster and Wingina on the Buckingham side of the James River. The house, which is known as Yellow Gravel, Zion Hill or Sion Hill, no longer stands.

In 1766, the House of Burgesses established a public ferry from the Zion Hill estate in Buckingham Co. to Dr. William Cabell’s land in Amherst (now Nelson County).  At this time Joseph Cabell (1732-1798) was living at Zion Hill.
