Richmond (Va.). Dept. of Planning and Community Development
Original Description (From Book)
This house of c. 1800 -1825 was the first black bank in the nation. It was the home of W.W. Brown [i.e. Browne], the founder of the True Reformers and founder of the bank. The house has an interesting bracketed cornice and porch added to this unusually wide Federal home which is similar to 133 West Jackson Street.
Original Note (From Book)
Jackson Street - This narrow street was, during the last years of the nineteenth century, the home of many prominent black families. It was the home of the most important black leaders and the site of the oldest black bank in the nation. The houses are modest in size and many are in poor repair today.
