875 Green Street

Owner/agent:  Held For Resale
Square Feet: 2,977   Lot: 9,400
Asking: $44,655      Annual property tax: $250

A rare survivor, this late-antebellum era house was built on the property of Dr. N. T. Green, one of Danville’s early physicians for whom the street was named. Even with a two-story addition in 1900, much of the early core on the right remains visible. The rear of the home has reminders of its early origins, especially its large teardrop-shaped brackets still hanging from the deep eaves. Substantial work is needed to remove or rebuild a single-story rear addition.
