Guerrant House

VLR Listing Date


NRHP Listing Date


NRHP Reference Number


Guerrant House is locally significant as a rare survival of a once prevalent house type; the basic one-and-a-half-story frame farmhouse with a kitchen building connected to the rear. Much of the Virginia landscape was once dotted with these buildings, but few remain, and fewer still in Buckingham County. The house was built about 1835 by Peter Guerrant and for more than 130 years was the home of the Guerrant and Snoddy families. The house exhibits typical late-Federal decorative and construction details, including beaded weatherboards, a boxed cornice with dentils, and shouldered chimneys. A smokehouse and small family cemetery also are on the Guerrant House property.
