Greenwood, the Wartburg College president's home, is one of Waverly's historic residences. Built in 1871, it was part of the 300-acre Greenwood Farm. Wartburg College purchased and renovated the Italianate-style Victorian home in 1986.
Architecturally, Greenwood features high ceilings, tall and narrow round-arched windows with elaborate crowns, and widely overhanging eaves with decorative brackets beneath. The house has a square form with a low pyramidal roof and a cupola. Many of the windows still have the original glass.
