Historic Architecture Downtown Richmond:
A Walking Tour
Center City Development (formerly Main Street RWC)
Peggy Hale Shop
The Eldorado Steam Laundry and Baths
829 East Main Street
Italianate style (1872)
This building is one of the earliest structure still extant on Main
Street. The heavy Italianate architecture has remained unchanged on the
upper stories. The hooded windows and bracketed cornice are original. In
1993, Richmond’s Main Street Program purchased the building as their
offices. In remodeling the building, the street entrance was returned to
its original symmetry. The two upper floors held apartments with a
skylight providing light to the interior space. In 1905, a steam laundry
and public baths occupied the first floor and basement.
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.
