Price Funeral Home

-A A +A
1902; later alterations. 212 E. Leigh St.

A. D. Price and Company, one of the largest African American funeral and livery establishments in Richmond, built this three-story brick structure, originally part of a row of commercial buildings that lined the street. The idiom is standard early twentieth-century commercial with large upper-floor windows. The secondfloor windows are rectangular, and those on the third floor are vaguely round-arched and vaguely Italianate. The lower floor has been “colonialized.”
