Rugby Road/The Corner
The Watson House
(c. 1905) Built as a Replica of Pavillion II on the UVa Lawn. Its full-height, pedimented, Ionic portico and suspended balcony with Chinese Chippendale railing is the only example in the district of such strong Jeffersonian Revival influence. Jennie J. Watson, widow of W.A. Watson, purchased this lot in 1904 and built this house the next year maintaining the property as a rooming house. At her death in 1930, she willed a life interest in the property to her daughter Hallie V. Watson who lived in the second story apartment until her death in 1960. The heirs sold the house in 1962 to Walter and Nancy Reynolds who conducted their interior decoration business from the first level and lived above. H. Vaughan and Darlene Wagnon bought the house in 1971 and operated a beauty salon on the first level and lived above.
