Chapman House, Camak

It’s hard to miss this once-grand old mansion as you approach Camak from Warrenton. It’s been a symbol of the town for over a century, but it’s days appear to be numbered. It was home to the Chapman family for many years, and in its early days, the second floor was used as a boarding house for railroad men.

Update: As of 2017, I understand the Chapman House is being restored. I hope to post an “after” photo in the future.

    Brian this picture just about ruins my day. A sad commentary on our priorities today.

    I remember visiting that house 60+ years ago when I lived in Camak. What a sad loss to that community. In its day it was something to behold.
