212. Cabaniss House (FY 1672)
709 Manly Street
This well-preserved two-story frame house is a simple but handsome example of the Colonial Revival style. It is characterized by a gable roof which extends downward across part of the rear to form a “saltbox” roof, weatherboard siding, and a front porch with slender Classical posts and a plain balustrade.
The house was built for John and Nellie Cabaniss. He was assistant treasurer and office manager for Brown and Williamson Tobacco Company The house is now occupied by Cabaniss’ second wife, Kathleen. (OS, TR, CD, SM)
Garage, Contributing: Behind the house is a one-car weatherboarded frame garage with a gable roof with cornice returns. It appears to have been built at the same as the house or soon thereafter.
