329 Walnut Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Story-and-a-half frame Craftsman bungalow with a stucco exterior and an asphalt-shingled gable roof with a large shed dormer across the front with multiple decorative windows indicating its former function as a sleeping porch. The engaged front porch has stuccoed square-section pillars with curved corbel-like tops, and there is a stuccoed railing. Other features include a north-end exterior brick chimney with concave shoulders, an exterior brick flue to the rear, a one-story bay window, a basement, 8/1 windows, and an engaged back porch with stucco square-section pillars. A root cellar may once have stood along the alley at the south corner of the property. Pharmacist Charles W. Rusmiselle, a co-owner of the Fishburne Store, and his wife Mabel Sellers Rusmiselle had this house built. (James K.
