Albert Gerst House in the Old West End

234 Jefferson Avenue, Danville, VA, USA


One in a row of similar “townhouses” dating from the 1880s, 234 Jefferson Avenue exhibits details typical of Queen Anne style — complex massing enriched by architectural terra-cotta and stained-and-leaded-glass windows. Whether one looks down at the encaustic tiled porch, or up to intricate ceiling medallions inside, the structure is an eclectic mix of color and pattern. It was constructed in 1885 for Albert and Sabina Gerst, among the first persons of German Jewish descent to settle in Danville.

This home has been carefully restored and updated, and is move-in ready.  It is located in the Old West End National Historic District. One of five National Register districts in Danville, Virginia, the OWE boasts the finest and most concentrated collection of Victorian and Edwardian architecture anywhere in the Commonwealth. But it’s not just the architecture. Located adjacent to our city’s flourishing downtown River District, the Old West End is a community of friendly people with a passion for preservation and restoration. Make your home in our welcoming neighborhood and our just-right city. Come join us.
