    1901 Folk Victorian
    Chestatee, GA

    Build date on record is 1920 but would be too late for this particular style. This is probably pre-1908.

    Too bad they got at the kitchen before stopping. It does look to me like a lot of woodwork was already stripped so that’s good. Neat property.

      Yeah I was going to comment on the woodwork, maybe they could do just a little more before they leave? Looks like they were doing a pretty good job with it.

    So many nice details. Hope someone is inspired to finish this update! Great house. Full of charm.

    Bravo for trying to get down to the wood trim. Having stripped paint off a few old and overly painted house interiors, I know it is not a small task.

    My folks lived in Walters for several months while my dad had a job there. They really liked that small town.

    This is my hometown! Great to see a Walters house on here! That building in the later pictures is a garage that is behind the house, I drive by it every time I go to Walters to visit my mom and my sister lives about 2 blocks south of there!

    1897 Queen Anne Colonial
    Cadiz, OH

    Identifiable Queen Anne style homes in Oklahoma are not very common. I agree that its not likely to date past 1910 or before 1900 on the early side. I’m not particularly bothered by the modernized kitchen; with some antiques and other accessories, the look could be changed to more closely reflect the period of the house without changing the functionality. If it were mine, I’d fancy up the porch under the Queen Anne round pavilion roof and put either proper Colonial columns or turned posts with ornamental brackets as well as a spindled balustrade and railing to make it look more picturesque. I’d replace the old concrete porch deck with wood decking and a brick skirting around the porch. I’d add a nice mirrored and columned antique Oak mantel in the parlor and a proper wood railing in place of the very functional pipe railing going upstairs. Perhaps originally there was an art (stained,leaded, or beveled) glass window somewhere. I think a salvage version would look fine. The large outbuilding is an asset as it has lots of extra space for perhaps a guest quarters. I’d add some architectural elements like trim around the windows and a barn type door to add visual appeal. Last would be a period appropriate color scheme after removing the later cement shingled siding and putting window trim back around the windows. Maybe a Queen Anne style entry door would compliment the sidelights. In summary, the work already done I’d consider a plus. The next owner(s) can bring their ideas and make this house their dream home and an asset for the neighborhood. I see potential here.

    There’s at least one more Queen Anne style home in Walters: (streetview) and the design is likely from a published/plan book source. Most of the town’s homes appear to date from the Teens and Twenties or later.

    Davisville, WV

    The building out back is a garage, but it looks to have enough room for maybe 3 or 4 apartments as well. Walters is not too far from Lawton/Fort Sill and would be an easy commute for Army personnel. Perhaps that is what it was used for. I lived in Lawton for a while as a teenager. Lots of people in the town built efficiency apartments behind their homes and rented out to soldiers stationed there for training. Fixing up the garage/apartments would be a way of producing income and paying the mortgage.
