John and Jennie Waugh House

-A A +A
1906. 412 W. Stuart Dr.

Set far back from the street within landscaped grounds, this grand two-and-a-half-story brick Colonial Revival house with its double-pile, five-bay form reflects the massing of the region's earliest brick houses. But here the form is modernized and aggrandized with a one-story wraparound porch and a centered, two-story monumental entrance Doric portico with a second-story balcony. A steep pyramidal roof with gabled dormers caps this house built for local businessman Waugh and his wife.
