Walnut Street Houses

-A A +A
Various dates. Walnut and Subsidiary sts., west of the Pendleton County Courthouse

Walnut Street, which becomes Hall's Hill Road as it ascends the hill west of the courthouse, has a concentration of vernacular structures predating the 1924 fire, which was contained just to the east. Most date from c. 1900 or earlier, are of frame construction, and are delightfully consistent in their small scale and informal arrangement. Fences and outbuildings add to the character of the area.
