Vandiver House

-A A +A
c. 1881, B. D. Price. West side of Mineral County 11, south of the intersection with U.S. 50/220
  • Vandiver House

A commodious, L-shaped, late-nineteenth century brick dwelling, this house shows a slight Italianate ambience in its segmental-arched window heads and bracketed raking cornices. The major decorative element is a commodious porch with narrow paired columns and a plethora of decorative trim. Original plans that survived in the roomy attic identified the Philadelphia architect and showed that he drew all the trim, which a scroll-saw operator later cut.
