Julia-Ann Historic District
Julia-Ann Square Historic District is the largest and oldest historic district in West Virginia and was an important center in West Virginia’s early history. Homeowners were comprised of leaders from the community including bankers, businessmen, professionals and political figures who had the financial means to construct the best houses of the time. Comprised of approximately 126 homes, the district’s structures are in the Second Empire, 19 century eclectic and Queen Ann styles dating from c. 1850 to 1910.
The Historic Walking Tour of the Julia-Ann Square Historic District features 49 houses and a historic church. Visitors can pick up a free copy of the walking tour guide at the CVB office.
The tour starts at the arch on 9th and Juliana Street.
