Quoit Club | 508 St. James Street

508 St. James Street was built in 1915. Designed by Charles Thaddeus Russell, one of Virginia’s first black architects, this house served as the home of prominent African-American physician, Dr. William Henry Hughes. The property later became the Negro Training Center for the Blind; it was the only public school for blind African Americans in Virginia.

Zarina Fazaldin recently purchased this property and plans to use historic tax credits to rehabilitate this Jackson Ward property. This will tour will be a hard hat tour in a construction site– please wear appropriate clothing and shoes (please no high heels for your safety)!

Event is free for Quoit Club members.
