1919, Henry Baskervill. 8901 Brennan Rd. (east on River Rd., right on South Mooreland Rd., .7 mile to Brennan Rd.)

The imposing Mediterranean Villa style house, behind a stucco wall and complete with red clay pantile roof, was designed by Richmond architect Henry Baskervill for Thomas L. Moore. The Moores operated a dairy farm, some of which was intact until the 1980s. With an imposing central tower, the tripartite fifteen-bay house is one of the largest mansions built in Richmond's western suburbs. The white, stucco-covered Mediterranean-inspired house contrasts sharply with the predominant Angloinfluenced brick buildings of the area.
