description

Summary

Significance: The James W. Mason House was built circa 1830 near the James River in Scottsville, Virginia. It is a good example of a house built during the transition from Federal to Greek Revival style employing elements of both. Remarkably, the house is virtually unaltered, except for the addition of a nursery in 1851, the installation of plumbing and electricity, and the addition of brick steps on the front portico, and a back porch. This house, with its unusual tripartite windows, has only been owned by 3 families, and remains in excellent condition.
