Evidence of Construction Date:

To establish a build date, there was an analysis of the research relating to neighboring properties. This date was originally based off of a date range that was narrowed down to 1930 through evidence from the following resources:
- Deed records in the Circuit Court Archives located in Fredericksburg, VA and Spotsylvania, VA which show the purchase dates of lots.
- Tax records in the Circuit Court Archives located in Fredericksburg, VA and Spotsylvania, VA
- The 1947 Sanborn Map.located in the Circuit Court Archives in Fredericksburg, VA
- Census document research located on the Fredericksburg Research Resources website created by Dr. Gary Stanton

Other Comments/Salient Details:

The difference in roof style from the rest of the neighborhood and the vinyl siding give the impression that this structure was built later than the surrounding structures.
