The Ellen Glasgow House
The Ellen Glasgow House is a prominent historic property, located in the heart of Richmond’s Monroe Ward. Built in 1841, the property is a Greek Revival Mansion. Long-term residence of Pulitzer prize-winning author Ellen Glasgow and in continuous use since its original construction, the property has been preserved with the original architectural features, including 14-foot ceilings, elaborate fireplaces with decorative mantels, classic floral ceiling medallions, and detailed woodwork. Entry is through a grand portico centered in the front of the building, and stately columns support a hip roof. The entryway has a dramatic high ceiling leading to a hanging stairway. The building features two floors above a fully serviceable English basement with a carriage house to the rear that has most recently been used as office space. Mature trees and boxwood gardens are surrounded by an 8-foot brick wall, providing privacy in the heart of the city. The property has National and Virginia Landmark designations in the highest categories.
