  • Double Houses (Virginia Division of Historic Resources)

Illustrating the conservatism of Richmond's architecture, these two-story, three-bay Greek Revival double houses with raised basements and side-hall entrances follow a formula that once dominated the city. The houses have entry porches with square columns and full entablatures, stepped gables, and two-story rear porches.
