Lyle Apartments. 1929

649 S Wayne Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Two-story Colonial Revival apartment building of stretcher brick-veneer frame construction with an asphalt-shingle hip roof. The double two-tier front porches have classical wood columns and square-section balusters, and the lower tier of the south porch has a mid-20th-century enclosure with a picture window. Other features include a poured-concrete foundation, exterior brick chimneys on both sides with single stepped shoulders, a front entry with a modern bracketed stoop, front brick steps, 6/6 windows, and a two-tier back porch with classical wood columns, rectangular-section balusters, and a partially enclosed lower tier. J. Ellison Loth was an early owner of this apartment building, which he named after his half-sister Mae Lyle. Contractor Homer Frahser lived here in 1954. (Calder Loth; Tulloch, ‘Report #21’)
