c. 1800, c. 1900. 2239 Cartersville Rd.
  • (Virginia Department of Historic Resources)

This frame house appears to be a late-eighteenth-century cottage with a c. 1800 rear gambrel-roof addition that was moved from another site. The one-and-a-half-story front section has three symmetrically placed openings below three gable dormers. Shed-roof pents flank the front sides of each of its exterior-end brick chimneys. The gambrel-roof rear section has shed dormers. Behind the house is a frame kitchen dating from c. 1830 and near the road is a one-room brick schoolhouse from the same era. The buildings form a mid-level plantation grouping with typically Southside one-and-a-half-story frame structures.
