Notes
Survey number HABS VA-1302
National Register Number: 90002098
Significance: Between Allison and Strawberry streets, the 2200 block is the first land beyond the Allen estate to become part of Monument Avenue. After Monument Avenue was widened west of Allison Street to 140' (from the original 80' of Franklin), the lots were shortened from 150' to 130' in depth, and the alleys shifted from 20' to 15' wide as the property lines were pushed back. Most of the block was built during the 1910s, with the larger corner lots on the south side standing empty until after 1925. Despite the short developmental time span, the north and south sides demonstrate remarkable differences in scale and style.
