Walter Scott Montgomery House – Spartanburg, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Spartanburg County Photos | Walter Scott Montgomery House
The Walter Scott Montgomery House is located in downtown Spartanburg at 314 South Pine Street. It was owned by textile magnate Walter S. Montgomery, Sr., chairman of Spartan Mills.
The home is listed in the National Register. It is described as follows:
The Walter Scott Montgomery House, located in a commercially-developed area of Spartanburg, is a two-and-one-half-story, brick-veneer residence built in 1909 for Walter Scott Montgomery. Plans were drawn by George F. Barber, Architect, of Knoxville, Tennessee, and the contractor was the Fiske-Carter Construction Company of Spartanburg. The Colonial Revival style residence has seen very few alterations since its construction, and has integrity of location, design, materials, craftsmanship, feeling and association. Much of Pine Street around the Montgomery House has seen modern commercial development; however, the house itself retains its large landscaped lot.
The house is typical of the type called “Classical Colonial” by Barber. The building is of frame construction with a yellow brick veneer and a red tile roof. In addition to its design, the Walter Scott Montgomery House is significant for its craftsmanship. The intricate and elegant plaster ornamentation, the detailing of the portico, and the leaded glass in the entrances are especially noteworthy. The property includes a one-story, reinforced concrete auto garage that was built before 1923.
