Vinegar Hill, View Down Old Preston


Click image to view original



Image date:

Description:

A view down Old Preston Avenue, approximately behind where Vinegar Hill Theatre currently sits.  This area was part of the project of urban renewal enacted in the 1960s.  Vinegar Hill one of the city’s first neighborhoods was boarded loosely by Preston Ave., West Main St., and Fourth Street. It was established by Irish families in the early 1800s and incorporated into Charlottesville in 1835.  African Americans fist moved onto the Hill after the Civil War. From the 1920s to the early 1960s it was the city’s principle black business district and the vibrant center of the community’s social life.
In the 1960s, noting Vinegar Hill’s large number of substandard homes, the voters of Charlottesville decided to redevelop the 20 acre neighborhood. The poll tax prevented many contemporary residents from voicing their opinions on the situation. By March 1965, one church, 30 businesses, and 158 families- 140 of which were black- had been relocated.

An angled view of the front of the C & O Station on Water Street


Click image to view original



Image date:

Description:

This revival style, sometimes called the Beaux Arts, sought to return to simple monumentality of classical architecture advocated by Jefferson a century earlier. Because of the scale and expense of reproducing Roman columns, entablatures, pediments and other detailing, this style was largely confined to large public structures.

The C & O Railroad became the first to reach Charlottesville. The building for the original depot arrived in 1848, and had to be replaced in 1865 after being burned down by General Sheridan’s troops, and again in 1905. Having the railroad there, increased University enrollment, and the shipment of goods and raw materials through town. The station was sold in 1984 and converted into office space.

Jackson Park Monument


Click image to view original



Image date:

Description:

A statue of Stonewall Jackson inside of Jackson Park. The photo is taken at an upward angle, so there is little background, and the focus is almost completely on the statue itself. The statue stands on top of a marble pedestal. The statue itself, faces south. The horse on which Jackson sits, is known as “Little Sorrel”, designed after the riding horse of Paul Goodloe McIntire. The tops of the trees and buildings across from the statue are visible. The pedestal has the image of a male and female angel sculpted into the front, and other cities in Virginia are engraved into the rim surrounding the top of the pedestal. The photo was taken by Alaville Magruder.

The sight of the park and the statue is the area where the McKee block once stood. The land was deeded to the city of Charlottesville on the condition that the park would erect no other statues besides the one he planned for Stonewall Jackson. This transaction took place on January 19, 1919. The statue cost an estimated $35,000. The city unveiled the Stonewall Jackson monument on October 19, 1921 during a Confederate reunion, and Stonewall Jackson’s great-great-granddaughter, Anna Jackson Preston, performed the unveiling. Walter Blair, a Charlottesville architect, developed the plan for Jackson Park. The Stonewall Jackson sculpture was the second of three pieces given to the City by Paul Goodloe McIntire. McIntire contracted the sculptor Charles Keck to design the Jackson statue. Between 1971 and 1972, the park was renovated under private and capital funding. Floyd E. Johnson of the architectural firm, Johnson, Craver and Gibson, designed the improvements for the park.
