Notes
Survey number HABS VA-589
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-340).
Building/structure dates: 1767 initial construction
Significance: Built originally as a storehouse. This building is a striking survival of a colonial mercantile establishment of a succession of Scots merchants. It is undoubtedly one of the earliest extant buildings in the country connected with the handling and probable sale of tobacco. Its importance to the HABSurvey is that of a rare, perhaps unique type-specimen of a modest business structure to be found in Virginia port towns during the 18th century.
