1. McNabb House Marker
Inscription.  Phillip Vogel, a German merchant, built this residence in the 1850s. It reflects the simple Greek revival style popular at the time. A. D. McNabb, owner of a saddlery shop, bought the property in 1887. He married Charlien Gloyd, daughter of temperance crusader Carry Nation, who operated a boarding house in Richmond in the 1880s. The McNabb family owned the house until 1972, when it was moved from its original location at 202 Jackson Street.
