Hanger House. Ca. 1891

313 Chestnut Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Two-story frame Victorian house with vinyl siding and an asphalt-shingled gable roof with a gabled front wing and peaked louvered vents. The one-story front porch has slender Ionic columns and turned balusters. Other features include a rockfaced concrete block foundation, an interior brick chimney, a two-story side bay window with millwork ornament under a cut-away gable, a two-story ell with an enclosed two-tier side porch, a front entry with transom, and modern 1/1 windows. A low brick retaining wall with a concrete coping extends across the front of the lot and a wood privacy fence encloses the backyard. Miss Helena Hanger built this house at some point after Summer 1890 and before mid-1891 when the house appeared in the 1891 aerial perspective. The Hanger family and a number of boarders appear to have been occupants of the house in 1900. A. W. Holt lived here in 1935. It is possible the house was remodeled in the early 20th century.

Garden shed (wood). Late 20th c.
