Notes
Survey number HABS VA-1304
National Register Number: 90002098
Significance: The block west of the Jefferson Davis Monument, Davis Avenueto Robinson Street, is a shorter block than most of those on Monument Avenue, having approximately half the width of an average block. This tract is also unusual because although there are seven structures on the north side, there is just one building on the entire south side of the street. This block developed a bit more slowly than others to the east. The first house on the block was built in 1908 and, with the exception of the vacant southwestern lot, the area was gradually filled in by 1924. All the buildings were designed as residences, either single-family dwellings or apartments.
