Library of Virginia
1895, William Poindexter. c. 1920, addition, W. Duncan Lee. 1102 Bank St.

Constructed as the Library of Virginia, this was originally an asymmetrical structure consisting of the present portico and north wing. Later renovations added the south wing and removed a large Palladian window. The Ionic portico reflects the influence of Jefferson's capitol.
