Notes
Survey number HABS VA-1300
National Register Number: 90002098
Significance: The 1800 block is architecturally rich and dense, including among its dwellings several variations of the Queen Anne, Neoclassical, and Colonial Revival styles, and one especially fine Georgian Revival example. One-story Colonial Revival front porches, most with white classical columns but some with brick or stone pillars, are a significant unifying compositional element down the block, as they are throughout the length of the avenue, along with a generous distribution of balustrades and limestone or brownstone accents on brick facades. These are the primary threads out of which the avenue's signature fabric is knit.
