Born in Switzerland, Frederick Segessenman emigrated to the United States and later built Boxhill Farm in 1896 on eight acres in Annandale. He was a landscaper and a florist and it is believed he planted the boxwood from which the home derives its name. Boxhill Farm stands north of Braddock Road near present-day Wakefield Chapel Road in Annandale.
