Lavelle House. 1900

573 S Wayne Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Two-story frame Victorian house with novelty vinyl and weatherboard siding. The asphalt-shingle hip roof has several gables with sawn, turned, pierced and fanfold ornament. A two-story gabled front wing has a modern circular louvered gable vent and a one-story bay window with reeded trim. The one-story wraparound porch has turned posts and balusters, sawn brackets, a spindle frieze with sawn fringe, and a partial enclosure. Other features include a brick foundation and interior chimney, a south-side two-story gabled wing with a one-story bay window, two-tier side and back porches, a two-story ell with a mostly enclosed two-tier side porch, and modem 1/1 windows. The house had been converted into eight apartments by 1935 when it was known as the Lavelle Apartments. A decorative iron fence and gate manufactured by the Stewart Iron Works extends along Wayne and Fourteenth.
