Summary

Significance: Built originally as a storehouse. This building is a striking survival of a colonial mercantile establishment of a succession of Scots merchants. It is undoubtedly one of the earliest extant buildings in the country connected with the handling and probable sale of tobacco. Its importance to the HABSurvey is that of a rare, perhaps unique type-specimen of a modest business structure to be found in Virginia port towns during the 18th century.
Unprocessed Field note material exists for this structure: FN-340
Survey number: HABS VA-589
Building/structure dates: ca. 1767 Initial Construction
