Historic Richmond shared this out yesterday:

Buildings We Love:
Joseph Watts House
701 N. 27th Street

Built in 1855, the Joseph Watts House is a Greek Revival in Church Hill North. Interestingly, the house was built in a style usually found much earlier and has fastidious stretcher brickwork. It was subsequently owned by William Folkes. In January, 1983, when Historic Richmond purchased the property to ensure its preservation, the original servants’ quarters were still located at the rear of the property. Today, a modern frame addition exists on the back of the house. The house and servants’ quarters have recently been well restored.
