Carter House in the Old West End

870 Pine St, Danville, VA 24541, USA


A fine example of the Italianate style, the cornice of this home is especially ornate with a frieze featuring sawn panels and sunflower motifs. The corner boards curve into large brackets. The exterior also includes a double-leaf entry with a transom and decorative sawn surround as well as its two-over-four full-length windows on the porch.

Built for John W. Carter, Sr., between 1883 and 1888.  His heirs sold the house to James A. Stone in October 1920.

Mid-century rear additions are unstable and need to be removed.

The Old West End is a National Historic District boasting perhaps the finest and most concentrated collection of Victorian and Edwardian residential architecture in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Lining Main Street and adjacent side streets just west of the River District is a splendid assemblage of the full range of architectural styles from the AnteBellum era to World War I. The District is particularly rich in distinguished examples of the post-Civil War styles such as the High Victorian Italianate, the High Victorian Gothic, French Renaissance Revival, Romanesque Revival, Eastlake, and Beaux Arts.
