Incorporated in the present rambling Colonial style suburban house is a smaller Federal
period dwelling which originally stood in Dinwiddie County. The original house was an
unusual two-room plan with a four-bay front. After having stood vacant for a number
of years, Mr. and Mrs. John C. Davis of Richmond purchased the house in 1936
and incorporated it into their new house. The front porch, and all present exterior
detailing, except the windows and sash, are modern. The most notable feature of the
building’s interior is its Chinese trellis staircase, which is preserved in unaltered form.
