Richmond (Va.). Dept. of Planning and Community Development
Original Description (From Book)
One of the oldest houses to survive in Jackson Ward, this house was built in 1827-1828. In 1895 it was made part of the funeral parlor of Arthur Hayes, a black undertaker. The steep roof and small windows are original, but the stucco covering and diamond shaped panes appear to date from the turn-of-the-century.
