1919, W. Duncan Lee. 101 E. Grace St.
  • Richmond Art Company (Virginia Division of Historic Resources)

The increasing eclecticism of American architecture in the 1910s and 1920s is well illustrated by this spectacular Mediterranean Revival composition with tile roof, a third-floor loggia, iron railings, lions, and urns. Lee was much better known for Colonial Revival design, but, in a sense, this building would be Colonial Revival if it were located in California.
