The Amberson House was built in 1887 by Dr. James Burns Amberson and Mary Katherine Good Amberson, and the home was passed down to the seven Amberson children and remained the Amberson family home until 1990. At the time of his passing in 1943 Dr. Amberson was the oldest resident of Waynesboro, and the last Civil War veteran, having fought in the battles of both Antietam and Gettysburg.
