An elegant Italianate-style brick house, Lackawanna was built in 1869 on a 1.75-acre site overlooking the South Fork of the Shenandoah River. Lackawanna is in the Riverton Historic District section at the northern end of the town of Front Royal. The house was built for Dorastus Cone, who came to the Shenandoah Valley from the Lackawanna Valley of Pennsylvania to operate a large merchant mill and other businesses. Unusual for its time, the Warren County house was constructed with a bathroom with running water and walk-in closets. In 1904, a Classical Revival-style front porch was added to Lackawanna.
