Bacon House. 1927

668 Walnut Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Story-and-a-half Tudor Revival house of stretcher brick-veneer frame construction with a complex asphalt-shingled clipped gable roof with a dormer. A steep-pitched gabled projection contains the front entry in a splayed round-arched embrasure with a header brick panel in the arch. Other features include a rear interior brick chimney with a battered stack, a round-arched passage that connects the house to a north-end garage with a front-gable roof and matchboard and glass doors, a south-end one-story bay window, a front picture window with casements, 4/4 and modern 6/6 windows, and a basement-level bracketed stoop to the rear. A concrete walkway with multiple flights of steps connects the house to the alley. The first manager of the Du Pont plant, Mr. Bacon, is said to have lived here. Contractor Harry Brooks was probably the builder. (Mrs. Loudermilk; William C. Culton)
