Walking Down Wertland

_DSC5312Enjoyed a walk down Wertand Street in Charlottesville last week with friend Fred Dove. Wertland is parallel to Main Street and just behind the Corner at UVA. Fred’s family owned businesses on The Corner and Fred grew up in this house which we stopped by to visit.

_DSC5297This historic neighborhood is home to many locally significant houses built including this one where artist Georgia O’Keefe stayed while attending UVA (long before women were generally admitted there).

I have previously written about this area on “Charlottesville Then and Now” but took many new photos last week to add to the archives and future stories about this part of town.
