It's the remains of an old house that was located in the middle of the Petersburg Battlefield. I believe the house survived the battle relatively unscathed. I know the Taylor's came back and farmed the area after the war. It was located in the midst of the Union artillery. It is also the location from which the high ranking Union officers observed the battle that unfolded around the "Crater."
