Hubert and Ethel Furr House. 1928-30

740 Maple Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Story-and-a-half Craftsman bungalow of cobblestone veneer or construction. The metal-sheathed gable roof has a stuccoed gable dormer. The front porch has square-section cobblestone pillars with an arched stucco span. Other features include a poured-concrete foundation with a basement garage with a fiberglass door, an interior brick flue with a cobblestone cap, 1/1 windows with decorative upper sash, and a glassed-in back porch with a stuccoed pantry. Hubert Harrison and Ethel May Furr began construction of this house in 1928 and completed it in 1930. They employed a black man to do the rock work--probably Jacob Fuller, who built similar houses in the Port Republic Road neighborhood during the same period. H. H. Furr was an electrician, and he died from electrocution a year after completing his house. (Lois Furr Bradley)
