Writing for ArchitectureRichmond, Robert P. Winthrop profiles Richmond architect Otis Asbury:

Asbury designed a number of houses on Monument Avenue, but he also designed a series of extravagant suburban houses associated with Byrd Park. He seems to have been comfortable both within the limitations of the urban environment and the freer suburban setting. He could be formal, grand or picturesque, depending on the desires of his clients. […] Asbury did little commercial work except for an unusual Classical bank on Church Hill and the Order of the Eagles Club house in Jackson Ward.
