Richmond (Va.). Dept. of Planning and Community Development
Original Description (From Book)
These are two fine and well-maintained Italianate houses of about 1875. Later additions have been harmonious, especially on 102. Both houses are fine examples of the period with thin cornices and projecting bays. 100 has been in the Kersey family since the 1880's, and 102 was the residence of P.B. Ramsey, a dentist.
Original Note (From Book)
100 Block of West Leigh Street - This block is now one sided since the enlargement of the school site on the south side of the street. The construction of Bo Jangles Park has given this block a lift.
