J. G. Andrews House

-A A +A
c. 1850. 314–316 S. Cherry St.

This frame double house is an early example of an Italianate house in Richmond. The building exhibits the interesting possibilities of even modest Italianate architecture. Projecting bays define the ends, and a porch extends between the bays. It is dramatically different from the flat-fronted Italianate houses of the post–Civil War period.
