Richmond (Va.). Dept. of Planning and Community Development
Original Description (From Book)
This is the longest row of united houses in Jackson Ward. It was built in part of Jackson's garden. The cornices and jigsaw porches are all united. Only one unit has had a porch of 1920 vintage substituted for the original. The segmental brick arched windows have slightly projected brick trim. Most of the wood picket fences are in place although not all are well-maintained. The color schemes of all the houses are typical of the eighties.
Original Note (From Book)
600 Block of North First Street - This is one of the most consistent blocks in Jackson Ward. Built in the last decades of the nineteenth century, this block contains smaller homes than on Leigh or Clay Streets. These are more easily used by modern families than the larger houses on other blocks.
