Virginia Apartments. 1930

444 S Wayne Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

"Two-story apartment building of stretcher brick-veneer frame construction with an asphalt-shingle hip roof. Of the original two-tier front porch only first-tier brick pedestals survive, with modern metal railings between the pedestals and false balconies for the second-story entries that once opened onto the porch. Other features include exterior brick chimneys, 6/1 windows, several rear basement-level garages with wood and glass doors, and a modern three-tier back porch with stained wood sunburst designs in the balustrades. The building is labeled ""from plans"" on the 1930 Sanborn map. In 1935 the building was occupied by four physicians including Dr. D. Edwards Watkins. Watkins and probably the others worked at the Weems-Watkins Hospital located across the street at 453 S. Wayne."
