Country Living - Pleasant Setting - Fully Remodeled

Built between 1880 and 1883 for William Henry Ruark, this cruciform plan house is one of the more substantial dwellings remaining in Westover and the only one with this formal plan.  The corners of the house are trimmed with paneled pilasters and the eaves boast paired decorative brackets.  Family tradition relates that after building this house, William H. Ruark left Somerset County for Norfolk, Virginia and the the house to his brother, Lafayette Ruark around 1897.
