Notes
Survey number HABS VA-1301
National Register Number: 90002098
Significance: Running from Meadow to Allison streets, the 2000 block is one of the densest sections of Monument Avenue, with thirty-one buildings. Almost entirely residential, the block was more than two-thirds complete by 1912, and includes one of the earliest houses on the avenue. The land, the last block of the Allen estate, was originally plotted in 30'-wide lots; most of the north side remains as such, while some significantly larger houses were built on the western half of the south side, including one a 70'-wide lot (No. 2037). Building styles on the block include some Queen Anne examples from the early 1900s, a few eccentricities, and a particularly exuberant Albert F. Huntt house, but the prevailing mode is Colonial Revival. Almost all have red-brick facades.
