Buck and Elizabeth Hanger House. Ca. 1940

814 15th St, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Story-and-a-half Craftsman bungalow of stretcher brick-veneer frame construction with an asphalt-shingled gable roof. The engaged front porch has elliptically arched Spans above rectangular-section brick pillars, and there is a decorative brick-lattice railing. Other features include an exterior end brick chimney with convex quarter-round shoulders, a poured-concrete foundation, a bracketed side stoop, soldier-course lintels over 6/1 windows, a basement-level garage with wood and glass panel doors, and a back deck. Buck Hanger was a railroad express agent. His wife Elizabeth was the daughter of J. W. Bowman, whose house stands next door at 704 Pine. Nearly identical to this house is that of Elizabeth B. Hanger's sister Louise Bowman Harmon at 710 Pine. (J. Sidney Langrall)
