Historic Architecture Downtown Richmond:
A Walking Tour
828-832 East Main Street
Italianate style (1878)
Local realtor, Omar L. Hittle, commissioned Architect John A.
Hasecoster to design the three story Hittle Block. Mr. Hittle and his
wife lived in an apartment on the second floor for several years, and
old newspapers report lavish Christmas par-ties held there. The original
use of the building was three stores on the first floor, fifteen offices
on the second, and rooms for the Masonic Lodge on the third. The smaller
two-story storefronts facing N. 9th St. were constructed on the north
side in 1884.
This is the web-based incarnation of a brochure originally published in
2010. While the history is still
very valuable, other information may no longer be accurate.
Information updated by WayNet will be listed in this maroon color.
