Constructed around 1936 on a six-acre parcel that was once part of the Daniel Barnhart Farm, which dates to the early 1800s, the Tayloe Rogers House in Roanoke incorporates hand-hewn logs dating to that early period. The resulting Rustic Colonial-Revival design thus reflects the Colonial Revival style popularized by the restoration of Colonial Williamsburg in the 1920s and an appreciation for the local building materials and traditions used in construction of the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway and the Rustic Park Service style of the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.
