801 North 24th coming back to life

Bill Conkle has recently purchased the long-vacant and much admired 1855 house at 801 North 24th Street. He opened up the house to neighbors on Thursday so that we could get a good look at the “before” version of the house.

Photographed for both Mary Wingfield Scott’s Old Richmond Neighborhoods (above) and the Richmond Esthetic Survey (below), the house had since become a vacant icon in Union Hill.

Conkle, a long-time resident of Union Hill, has restored a number of houses in the area. Many have admired this house and will be watching the transformation.

There is a group of photos on Flickr tagged for this house; two of the photos from that set are below:
