Richmond (Va.). Dept. of Planning and Community Development
Original Description (From Book)
c. 1850 altered c. 1890. This was built as the Clay Street AME Church by Albert West, a notable Richmond architect. It was originally Italianate in style. It was later given a fashionable Gothic front. The loss of its steeple and the blue and white window panels have compromised its appearance, but it remains a major local landmark.
Original Note (From Book)
The 00 Block of West Clay Street contains the finest collection of stepped gabled Greek Revival houses in the City. It was originally owned by Addolph Dill, a prosperous baker. Dill began the development of this street as a high quality residential area, a character which has largely been maintained.
