Fleming Hurt House. 1941

701 Locust Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

"One-and-a-half-story, three-bay Colonial Revival single-family dwelling of weathered bricks laid in stretcher bond with exterior end brick chimneys that have paved shoulders and corbelled caps. The chimney in the gable end facing Fifteenth Street has a small arched window on the first floor, and adjoins a \""Dutch\"" divided door that leads into the small fenced side garden. The house's gabled roof is covered in slate shingles, reputedly obtained from the former Basic City train station. Windows have 6/6 double-hung wood sash and louvered shutters. Three hipped dormers occupy the front roof plane. A one-story hipped wing, attached by a short hyphen, is located to one side of the house. The house was designed by its original owner, local architect Fleming Hurt, with the assistance of architect Daley Craig. Reputedly begun the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed in 1941, the home's brick was obtained from a pre-Civil War building previously located on the corner of Main and Wayne in downtown Waynesboro. A set of original blueprints remains on site. Gazebo/shed. Ca. 2000. Hexagonal gazebo of wood frame construction, partially enclosed for storage."
