Morris Cottages

-A A +A
1830, 1835, John Morris. 2500 E. Grace St. and 201 N. 25th St.

One-and-one-half-story gabled cottages such as these were a common sight in Richmond in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The owner, John Morris, was a carpenter and built one structure as his home and the other as a rental property. The raised basements are not elements of the original design but rather a result of the regrading of 25th Street.
