William B. Sellers House. Ca. 1891

425 Maple Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Two-story frame Victorian house with asbestos-shingle siding and a metal-sheathed gable roof with a decorative front gable with a circular vent with chrysanthemum-pattern piercings. The one-story wraparound porch has square-section wood columns. Other features include a brick foundation and interior chimney, 2/2 windows with reeded trim and delicately turned comer blocks, a back deck, a two-story ell, and a one-story rear addition with a cinder-block foundation. Artist William Barry Sellers lived here, as did (in 1935) K. F. Rosen. William White, a long-time resident of the street, claimed that this was the oldest house on Maple. (Lois F. Bradley; James K.
