Evidence of Construction Date:

Although land tax records show 1935 as being the first year that LT 54 BL 128 was taxed, the house appears on the 1930 land book of Fredericksburg. Neither the property nor Featherstone appear in documentation before this. Therefore, the earliest possible date of construction is 1930.
