Virginia - Charlottesville


All photos are heading west on US Route 250 Business, West Main Street.

Unfortunately, this mural is mostly covered by a new building next to it, but the blue tiled storefront remains.

The First Baptist Church was established in 1883 as an African-American congregation.

My only photo on the south side of the street, Patton Mansion is now a credit union, but was built as a house in 1907. Quite a transition.

Past 14th Street and the railroad trestle, look up to find these painted building ads.

This is the most famous building in the city's famous university. The Rotunda was designed by Thomas Jefferson and therefore has a statue of the slaveowner out front. It was completed after his death in 1826 and has been assigned the address #1826 West Main.

Fayerweather Hall, built in 1893 as the first modern gymnasium for the college, already outdated by 1924 and converted into classrooms to become home to the new art department.

Carr's Hill, the President's house, was built in the Colonial Revival style in 1906 just west of Fayerweather Gymnasium.
