Nuckols House

-A A +A
c. 1900, George F. Barber. 502 W. Stuart Dr.

Located on a rise above downtown, this Queen Anne house is one of a small number of Barber-designed buildings in Southwest Virginia. The house is a slightly smaller version of the Davis Bourne Inn (GY4) in Independence. A one-story Doric porch wraps one side of the facade and a round tower anchors the opposite corner. Stickwork embellishes the front gable, balcony, and entrance pediment, and wood shingles sheathe the balcony walls and all three levels of the tower. The house's two-color paint scheme calls attention to the elaborate woodwork and surface textures.
