Charles H. Lovegrove House. Ca. 1905

668 Chestnut Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Two-story frame Victorian house with novelty vinyl siding and an asphalt-shingled gable roof with a decorative front gable. The one-story front porch has turned posts and balusters, sawn brackets with turned pendants, and a sawn fringe. Other features include a brick foundation and interior flue in the ell, a front entry with transom, sidelights, and a molded surround, modem arched louvered vents in the gables, modem 2/2 windows, and a two-story ell with a brick and poured-concrete foundation and an engaged two-tier side porch with chamfered wood posts and vasiform sawn balusters. A wood privacy fence extends along the side alley. Lovegrove was a carpenter who apparently built this house and the one next door at 600 Chestnut. H. G. Baylor lived here in 1935. (Joseph Moyer)
