Unique historical character. Built in 1930 and popularly known as “The Rock House,” the original part of the house is a remarkable example of the American foursquare style popular from the late 19th century through the 1930s. Typical of this style are the perfectly square footprint of the principal structure; the 2½ stories topped by a hipped roof with a front dormer; and the Arts and Crafts details of the interior. More unusual features include the 15-inch thick exterior walls with a meticulously applied river rock façade; the elegant porte-cochère on the west side of the home; and the generous walnut trim, doors, and built-ins throughout most of the original house. In 2013 the home was featured on the Nelson County Historic Homes and Properties Tour.
