Richmond, Fredericksburg, and Potomac Railroad Section Manager's House

-A A +A
c. 1900. 11010 Old Washington Hwy. (.75 mile from Mountain Rd., on the left)

This building is an unusual survivor. The Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad built section managers' houses at various points. Most were built from a common plan, and it seems likely that most of the materials, if not prefabricated sections of the buildings, were shipped to the site by rail. The board-andbatten siding gives the house a vaguely Gothic Revival look.
