McKay's Apartments. Ca. 1910

673 S Wayne Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Two-story frame Victorian house with textured stucco exterior and a metal-sheathed hip roof with gables with peaked louvered gable vents. The one-story front porch has classical wood columns, turned balusters, and a lattice trellis at the north end. Other features include a rockfaced concrete-block foundation, an interior brick flue, a front entry with transom and sidelights and a molded and chamfered surround, modern 2/2 windows, and a two-story ell. The sunken front yard (probably due to street grade change) has a poured-concrete retaining wall with pipe railing along Wayne and Rife. The house had been converted into three apartments by 1935 when it was know as McKay’s Apartments. The Dorrier family later used it as a boarding house. (Calder Loth)
