Title Note Chimney
Date February 14, 1936
Description Clay-mortar stone chimney, Holloway Place
Commentary Parkway buildings reflected the architecture of the region through which they passed, such as this house. Use of such local forms was considered a sort of preservation, and characteristic features of mountain buildings, such as the stone chimney seen here, were borrowed for modern parkway structures.
