Lee Monument on Richmond’s celebrated Monument Avenue, is the most prominent design of prolific local architect W.
Harrison Pringle and the best-known project of local builder and developer Franklin A. Lee Medical Building was completed in 1952 after a sustained battle between the building’s owner and developer who fought for its construction and neighboring homeowners who bitterly contested its development.
The six-story Colonial Revival building was speculatively developed with the hope of providing offices, laboratories, and outpatient medical facilities for doctors and dentists in the well-established Monument Avenue residential neighborhood.
An understated earlier example of the same building type in Richmond is the 1920s Medical Arts Building at N. What distinguishes the Lee Medical Building is its commanding orientation toward the Lee monument and multiple design elements that complement the Lee circle and Monument Avenue. Composed of gray granite and just over four-feet in height and 29 inches wide, the Little River marker was dedicated in 1936 and is one of sixteen erected in Virginia along the Jefferson Davis Highway between 19 by the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) to commemorate Jefferson Davis, the first and only president of the Confederate States of America.
Important for its association with late-19th century suburban development adjacent to Charlottesville, the North Belmont Neighborhood Historic District covers about 75 acres located in the southeastern part of the city.
