Very Old Federal Style Home For Sale In Staunton, Virginia

Very old Federal style house in Staunton Virginia

The interesting thing about this wonderful old house is that the realtor has it listed as being “c. 1921”.

Who thinks the agent’s guestimate is off by a few decades?

Granted he does state “City records do not go back past 1921”, but come on. This house is waaaaaay older than the 1920’s. It likely pre-dates the Civil War!
