The Walter Scott Montgomery House, located in a commercially developed area of Spartanburg, is a two-and-one-half-story, brick-veneer residence built in 1909 for Walter Scott Montgomery. The Neo-Classical and Colonial Revival style residence was designed by George F. Barber and constructed by the Fiske-Carter Construction Company. It is significant for its association with Montgomery, prominent Spartanburg businessman and civic leader, as well as for its Barber design and the quality of craftsmanship. Barber, who practiced architecture in Knoxville, Tennessee, from 1889 to 1915, was noted primarily for his mail-order houses that he publicized in numerous catalogues and sold nationwide. The house is typical of the type called “Classical Colonial” by Barber. The building is of frame construction with a yellow brick veneer and a red tile roof. In addition to its design, the Walter Scott Montgomery House is significant for its craftsmanship. The intricate and elegant plaster ornamentation, the detailing of the portico, and the leaded glass in the entrances are especially noteworthy. The property includes a one-story, reinforced concrete auto garage that was built before 1923. Listed in the National Register November 1, 1984.
