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.

I love to drive through and look at the beautiful and graceful homes in the East End. It's a lovely walk in nice weather and the streets have many people out to enjoy fresh air.

This street block is a mixture of restored century old homes and some that were in poor shape. I especially loved the huge stone church. I thought it was just beautiful and elegant.

We enjoyed driving the historical district and seeing the unique architecture of the homes. I was amazed at how most of the homes do not sit perpendicular to the street, but are at an angle. Most seemed well kept with lots of for sale signs...More

If you're in town it's worth the time. We've traveled extensively and used to live in a town that is on the National Historic register so, while this area is pretty we've seen similarly pretty neighborhoods. Walk or drive it.

Century+ old goodness abounds. Many well maintained or lovingly restored with gardens, landscape accents, stained glass and the like. Walk the long block of Lee street and go over and back Virginia Street, or vice-versa, and note all the house styles. End your journey with...More
