Inscription.  This three-bay frame house was built c. 1881. The original design has been retrimmed with Georgian Revival details. The rear windows of the house have outstanding views of the river and surrounding neighborhoods. Originally, the house address was 3009 East Main Street. James H. Blair, a druggist at Blair Drug, purchased the house in 1895. Mr. Blair passed away in 1916 and his wife, Rosalie sold the house in 1919 to Eugene C. Haynes, a salesman. Homer and Dora Duckett, who both worked at Pohlig Brothers Paper Box Factory, purchased the house in 1921. This house is listed as a contributing structure to the St. John's Church Historic District on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places.
