McGee House. 1914

421 Walnut Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Two-story Colonial Revival house of stretcher bond brick or brick veneer construction with an asphalt-shingled gable roof with pedimented dormers. The one-story front entry porch has classical wood columns, a dentil cornice, and a roof balustrade (a similar porch attaches to the north end). Other features include interior and exterior brick chimneys (the latter with stepped shoulders), an unusual band of alternating soldier bricks and concrete panels at the second-story floor level, a modillion cornice, gable lunettes, three-part windows with 6/1 windows and 2/2 flankers, concrete window lintels, a single surviving early wooden shutter with a louvered lower half and an upper half and an upper half with a crescent-moon cutout, a one-story rear wing with a roof balustrade, and a one-story back screen porch with a modern second tier. A high poured-concrete retaining wall extends across the front of the lot. The McGee family is thought to be the original owner of this house. Later occupants include the Bargers, the Mayers, and (in 1935) Boyd Stombock. (James K. Wright)

Garage. 1930s-40s (S).
