—Historic Renovation Award 2008 —Waverly Cottage, also known as the Shone-Charley House, was constructed in 1895 by Joe Shone in the Queen Anne/Eastlake Style. Shone was born in England in 1865, and arrived in Medford in 1895 with a wife and two children. Designed by architect W. J. Bennet, the house is a remarkable example of complex design and elaborate embellishment. During the construction of his home, Joe managed the Barnum Planing Mill, and served as primary contractor for the Wilkinson-Swem Building in downtown Medford. Named Waverly Cottage by the Shones, the house was sold to William and Andromeda Charley in 1901.
