Narrative from Virginia Landmarks Registry

"The Anchorage is a substantial brick farmhouse that evolved over a half century, possibly beginning as early as 1826. It was owned first by the Lewis and Howell families and for more than 125 years by John White and his descendants. The house is characterized by flamboyant Victorian embellishments, including Gothic Revival interior woodwork, elaborate porches with scroll-sawn ornament, unusual Italianate octagonal columns, and both real and false windows enriched with wooden pediments resting on brackets. It is located in a bucolic setting that includes a barn and family cemetery in the midst of rolling fields surrounded by hills and mountain vistas."
