3936 Dover Road, ca. 1929, ca. 2000, Contributing Building

One-and-a-half-story side-gabled Tudor Revival with brick exterior, wood casement windows, slightly

projecting front-gabled bay, gabled wall dormers, and flanking side-gabled wings. Off-center front

entry is in the front-gabled bay; the wing at the left side of the facade and a large gabled rear wing with

shed-roofed porch, casement windows, wall dormer, and cementitous siding are much later additions.

Edgar Cheek, owner of a namesake insurance agency, and his wife Adelaide purchased this parcel for

$3,000 from the developers in 1929, according to deeds. City directories list the Cheeks in Hope

Valley as early as 1931. In 1934, they sold the property to Zebulon Vance Waller and his wife.

Zebulon Waller was the supervisor of the leaf department at Liggett and Myers Tobacco Company at

the time.
