One of Wytheville's several lofty classical residences of buff-colored brick, this has a colossal balustraded portico with paired Doric columns. The house was built for the brother of E. Lee Trinkle, governor of Virginia from 1922 to 1926 and a Wytheville native, and whose equally impressive residence has been demolished. Another grand house of buff-colored brick built for the well-heeled Trinkle brothers was that of Clarence M. Trinkle at 325 Church Street (c. 1910) and now the Barnett Funeral Home. It features a semicircular portico of colossal Doric columns, and Palladian windows flank the entrance.
