349 Mountain Road


Built in 1901 by Dr. William S. Lovelace, dentist in Halifax for 60 years and Mayor for 30 years. The Bill Covington family is the 5th generation to live in the home.
The eclecticism of early 20th century architecture is represented on Mountain Road by several residences. Two particularly fine examples are 136 (Shapard) and 370 (Rest-a-While, now the Chastain Home) Mountain Road. Both dwellings combine the Queen Anne and Georgian Revival styles popular during the 19th century. The lawn surrounding the Chastain home is well landscaped with many of its trees and shrubs dating to 1910.
