Wilson & Mary Warner House (BE 1272)

Wilson and Mary Warner House Constructed in 1878, The Wilson and Mary Warner House sits on Petersburg Road in Hebron. The house was built for Wilson Warner, a farmer and mail carrier, and his wife, Mary Utz Warner, who inherited the property from her mother.

The house is a three-bay frame I-house with balanced facade and saltbox ell. A brick chimney (a replacement of the original) is placed off-center in the ridgeline. During the 1950s the front doorway was altered in the Colonial Revival manner, with broken pediment and fluted pilasters. The original, floor-to-ceiling windows of the first story were replaced with new, smaller sashes with horizontal muntins.
