The term wainscot originally applied to the inner covering of a wall or walls with high quality oak or wooden boards. 
We know that this term has changed a lot, as do home trends and terminology do in general. 
Now, the term wainscot typically applies to a 3 to 4 foot high covering or lining on an interior or an exterior of a home or building. And it no longer only applies to wood boards, but to all sorts of products including stone, brick, etc. 

Here are twelve exterior stone wainscots in particular that we are quite fond of.
