John Winn House, 759 Belmont Avenue, Charlottesville, Charlottesville, VA
1987 Charles E. Peterson Prize, Honorable Mention
Significance: This house, once part of a 551 acre estate, is believed to have been built for John Winn by John Jordan, a brick mason for Thomas Jefferson. It is similar to other buildings built by Jordan, such as Stono, in Lexington, Virginia. With its center pavilion with lower symmetrical side wings, the Winn House illustrates Jefferson's influence on Jordan. The details of the house are of the Greek Revival and Federal periods as it was built during the transition between the two.
