Notes
Survey number HABS VA-1311
National Register Number: 90002098
Significance: The 3200 block, between Cleveland and Tilden, is about the same length as neighboring blocks. The south side of the street is an odd-shaped block with a diagonal alley, parallel to West Franklin Street on the south. Nonetheless, all the lots on Monument Avenue are perpendicular to it. The north side of the street has nine lots of uniform depth with an east-west alley at the rear. Lots on the north side of the street are rectangular, but wider than they were in 1916 when subdivided from land owned by Dr. John F. Sheppard. There were fourteen lots platted between Cleveland and Tilden Streets in 1916 and, while lots directly beyond the alley (which border Grace Street) maintain that narrow division today, the lots fronting Monument developed into wider parcels to a total of nine. Along with the 3100 block, this block breaks the general bilateral balance of Monument Avenue, which generally has wider, more spacious blocks and larger-scale architecture on the south side.
