Young House is the oldest house on property circa 1810. Staunton’s first big boom of growth was in the 1840s with the introduction of Augusta Female Seminary followed shortly by the railroad in the 1850s. This house precedes them both and is a reminder that Staunton was once the western capital of Virginia. It has more interesting internal architecture as compared to the other houses. The facade is the iconic Frederick House logo. Inside, the stair rails are beautiful and the upstairs room (Young-11) has original floors. On the stairs, there is a traditional coffin corner. The original plaster and most trim work mimic the famous dining room at Monticello. So, the original owners were very well to do to have hired workers from Monticello or possibly have seen it themselves.
