Gable Manor/Rose Cottage - 1859


Gable Manor is a fine example of Gothic Revival design, a style influenced by the writings of Andrew Jackson Downing.
Judge Edward H. Lane, first Judge of the newly created Louisa County Court in 1870, built this house. Once called Rose Cottage, Mrs. R. Heber Richards rechristened it Gable Manor.
It served as a schoolhouse from 1915-1920. Tradition says it was used as a hospital during the Civil War.
