|John McDaniel House|
So, with little information to go on, I'm left to piece together what I can, and take educated guesses at the rest. What the National Register entry does say about the house, which sits a few hundred yards north of Paper Mill Road just east of North Star Road in the Meadowdale neighborhood, is that it is a two-story, five-bay, fieldstone house covered in stucco. Originally, the front facade was a classic Georgian five-bay symmetrical arrangement with a centered door, but at some point a two-story bay window was added covering the two eastern-most (right side) windows. As I noted in the McDaniel-Peach House post, that house has a similar addition on it. It may not be completely a coincidence, since the two houses were built by men in the same family. While I can't be completely sure who was responsible for these houses (and if anyone does know, I'd love to hear), I can make solid hypotheses.
