Owner description: Listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1983, this area remains charmingly well-preserved. Most of the buildings here were constructed between 1895-1925, and styles range from Greek Revival and Queen Anne to Colonial, Georgian and Italianate. Bounded by Bradford and Quarrier Streets, East Avenue and Kanawha Blvd, the East End is an excellent neighborhood for a leisurely afternoon stroll.

“Beauty and blight.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Drove the district. Found many homes in the district were beautiful but some were not so well kept. I suspect flooding has taken a toll on some of the older buildings over the years. Worth the drive but really didn't find the wow factor I have found in other historic districts.

“Charleston, WV East End Historic District”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Charleston's historical district is like no other...beautiful tree lined streets with gorgeous, well maintained older brick homes in Victorian and Craftsman styles. I especially loved how the historic district is right off the downtown area of the city...very convenient!

“Great Place to Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

The East End Historical District is a great place for an evening stroll. I love the older homes and wonder about the families who have occupied them over the years.
