Kenbridge and Vicinity

-A A +A

Kenbridge was once an important tobacco market town and its Main Street, lined with tobacco warehouses and other large operations, is more industrial than commercial. The town's commercial area is on S. Broad Street and consists of mostly one- and two-story brick stores that are generally in need of revitalization. The residential area on E. 5th Street has a nice blend of late Queen Anne, foursquare, Arts and Crafts, Colonial Revival, and some ranch-style apartments.
