Samuel Leffel House

-A A +A
c. 1830. South side of VA 42, 0.1 miles east of VA 624

Located on the waters of Meadow Creek, this wooden farmhouse has changed little since its construction. Dominating one gable end is a massive stone chimney, with roughly dressed blocks laid in courses. A two-story, two-level front porch with decorative sawn balusters and chamfered posts shelters the vertical board siding of the front elevation. The three-bay facade incorporates central doorways flanked by windows with six-over-six double-hung sashes.
